Holidays got you stressed out? Then why not come on in and try out the latest trend for adults: adult coloring! We’re having an adult coloring party on December 15th at 11 AM in the library Winchell Room. Drop in, sit down, and relax with some quiet time and experience the benefits of coloring therapy. Studies show that coloring can have a calming effect on the adult mind and help to promote overall wellness. The library will provide coffee and tea, coloring pages from books designed especially for adults, as well as colored pencils, markers, and crayons. If you prefer, you can bring your own coloring materials and enjoy the company. For more information please contact Yvonne Loomis at 624-6550 ext. 320. We hope you will join us and color yourself calm! See you at the coloring club.

For the month of November the Brown Bag Book Club will be discussing the ‘A Man Called Ove’ by Frederick Backman. Ove is a curmudgeon, but behind the cranky exterior is a story and a sadness. However, when a chatty young couple and their two daughters move in next door and begin their association by flattening Ove’s mailbox, a new and unexpected world opens up. Plan to join us at lunchtime on Tuesday, November 24th at 12:15 and bring your lunch – dessert is on us! For more information please contact the Information Department at 624-6550 ext. 319.
