The coolest thing in the world is new at the library right now! The One-Of-A-Kind Club has been started. Of course you want to join as we are all "one of a kind" and we are also all of one kind. As confusing as that sounds it is so true. 
This Club only wants you to sign up, promise to do something kind for someone everyday day and that is it. Think how good the world would be if everyone, (7 billion people) did something nice every single day? This is so great that our Town Board actually passed a resolution endorsing this club throughout the Town. Let us take it further and make this something so big it goes viral on facebook and really puts our town on the map for something so positive! WE CAN DO THIS!!!
