A small gesture can make all the difference in someone’s day. Recently, students at West Ferris Secondary School created inspirational bookmarks to be placed in books at the North Bay Public Library, all in an effort to spread kindness.
“We didn’t choose to do this for the recognition; we did this because we wanted to spread kindness. We wanted to bring a little happiness to others,” said a collective student group.
In all, 150 bookmarks written in both English and French were created by students as part of World Kindness Day, which was on Nov. 13. The bookmarks will be hidden in books at the public library to be a warm and pleasant surprise for those who open them.
“We’re thankful to the public library for working with us to get the bookmarks out to the public, and hope that the bookmarks brighten someone’s day,” noted Jessica Feick of WFSS’ Library Services department.
