Rockland Reference Librarian Jessie Blanchard with #CheckOutRockland Passports
Rockland Public Library will take part in “Outside the Lines: Libraries Reintroduced,” a celebration of the creativity and innovation happening in libraries, from Sunday, September 10 to Saturday, September 16, with all activities free and open to the public.

During the week, the library is encouraging people to not only check out books and media from the library, but to “check out” the parks and green spaces in Rockland. People are invited to stop by the library and pick up a #CheckOutRockland Passport and park list and visit five city parks, where they can search for a hidden stamp for their passport, and also take photos at the parks and share them on Facebook (hashtag #CheckOutRockland). On September 16 they can bring their completed passport to the library at 1 p.m. for a small prize and celebration on the library lawn.

On Tuesday, September 12, at 10:30 a.m., all ages are invited to join Miss Katie to celebrate International Dot Day with a story time and dot fun inspired by the book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds (“Make your mark, and see where it takes you”). People are encouraged to “dress in polka dots if you have them,” and throughout the week, the library encourages patrons of all ages to express their creativity through a special dot art project.
