Press Release



St. Helens, Ore. – The St. Helens Public Library is partnering with the St. Helens Arts and Cultural Commission (ACC) to host a Libraries Rock paint event on Tuesday, June 26, from 7-9 p.m. at the Library. This event is part of the Library’s adult Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is Libraries Rock!

The ACC will have supplies on hand for people to paint rocks with designs and quotes. Participants can then hide the rocks throughout the community for others to find.

The ACC has joined the Kindness Rocks Project, a national movement of creative inspiration that believes that finding one message of inspiration at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, and life. The idea is to inspire strangers through randomly placed rocks. People who find the rocks caSn link back to the project on social media through hashtags listed on the rocks. The goal is to recruit every person who stumbles upon a Kindness Rock to join in the pursuit of inspiring others through random acts of kindness.


For further information regarding the Libraries Rock event, please contact Library Director Margaret Jeffries at 503-397-4544 or
