Looking for something to do this weekend? How about warming your bones during the coldest part of the year with a variety of delicious soups, while helping support a great cause at the same time?

From noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25, the Maury Loontjens (Narragansett Public) Library, located at 35 Kingstown Road in Narragansett, will host a "Stone Soup" Story, Buffet & Food Drive.

The afternoon will begin with a re-telling of the classic children's story, Stone Soup, a folk story in which hungry strangers persuade local people of a town to give them food. It is usually told as a lesson in cooperation, especially in times of famine or hardship.

Following the story, participants are invited to join a free soup buffet, featuring donations from local restaurants. 

Guests of all ages are each asked to donate one non-perishable food or personal hygiene item as an admission fee, which will be distributed to local residents in need.

Saturday's Stone Soup event is sponsored by the Friends of the Narragansett Library.
