We’re planning for a colorful fall season here at the library. Come on in and try out one of the most recent popular trends for adults: adult coloring! We are offering a series of adult coloring programs this Fall! Drop in, sit down, and relax with some quiet time and experience the benefits of meditative coloring. Studies show that coloring can have a calming effect on the adult mind and help to promote overall wellness.
The library will provide 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. This month’s theme is inspired by Halloween and the Halloween song The Monster Mash. Join us on Monday night, October 24th at 6 PM in the Winchell Room for a spooky good time. For more information, please contact Yvonne at 624-6550 ext. 3320. We hope you will join us!
