Next time you need to get to the second floor of the Fairfield Public Library, take the stairs.
The library staff and its patrons have created a "Wonder Wall" as part of Fairfield's One Book One Town event. This year's choice -- "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio -- has jumpstarted a conversation about choosing kindness, the message of the book.
On the wall are reasons why and examples of how Fairfield residents have chosen kindness:
"Even small people have big hearts," Anya wrote.
"I helped a student with his homework," Nicholas, age 12, said.
Five-year-old Finn helped his mom with baby sister Jane.
Have you read "Wonder"? How have you chosen kindness?
