Saint Mary School Students Spread Kindness at Ridgefield Library

RIDGEFIELD—Saint Mary School grade three and four students recently visited the Ridgefield Public Library to spread kindness by hiding bookmarks with positive messages in books in the Children’s Library.

Mary Tappan, SMS Librarian led students in brainstorming words of kindness and positivity to put on their bookmarks.  Students in Kindergarten-Grade 4 then made 110 bookmarks with drawings, decorations, and messages, which were laminated and had ribbons attached.  “Our students really enjoyed the creative process of making the bookmarks, and grades three and four were delighted to be chosen to hide the bookmarks in the Children’s Library books. I only wish we could be here to see a child open a book and find one!”

Students were also given a behind the scenes look at the Library by Shay Glass, Children’s Librarian, including how books are returned and sorted.
