Letter: Such kindness!As an employee at the River Falls Public Library, I was astounded by the kindness of a stranger.

As an employee at the River Falls Public Library, I was astounded by the kindness of a stranger.
Recently, St. Bridget’s Elementary School came to the library. I informed the teacher that most of the children had accrued fines.
The stranger was impressed by the good behavior displayed by the children and offered to pay for all the children’s fines.
He expressed the importance of libraries and reading. He wanted to make sure no children would lose the privilege of “the written word.”
Approximately 30 of us benefited by the kindness of this stranger. May we all learn from this anonymous stranger and go forth and be kind to our fellow man.
