Library to mark 'Outside the Lines' week Sept. 10-16

Sep 01, 2017

Rockland — The Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., is participating in "Outside the Lines: Libraries Re-introduced" during the week of Sept. 10 to 16. “Outside the Lines” is a weeklong celebration demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries.

During the week, the library is encouraging people to check out more than just books from the library, including some of the parks and green spaces in Rockland.

Participants are invited to come to the library to pick up a #CheckOutRockland Passport and park list and then visit five city parks where they will search for a hidden stamp to stamp their passport. They are also encouraged to take photos at the parks they visit and share them on Facebook with the hashtag #CheckOutRockland and bring their completed passport to the Library Saturday, Sept. 16, at 1 p.m. for a small prize and celebration on the Library lawn.

Another special event for the week:Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 10:30 a.m., join Miss Katie to celebrate International Dot Day with a storytime and dot decorating inspired by the book "The Dot," by Peter H. Reynolds.

For anyone who has been afraid to express themselves -- from a child in art class to an adult whose fear has shut down a long-held dream -- "The Dot" is there to remind us all to "Make your mark, and see where it takes you." Dress in polka dots if you have them!

Throughout the week, the Library encourages patrons of all ages to express their creativity through a special dot art project.
