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!

It’s hard to believe, but the Presidential election is less than a month away. In the months leading up to this moment, you have probably been accosted by slanderous media reports left and right. Perhaps you’ve considered leaving your party for the other, or maybe not even voting at all?
As citizens of this country, it is our right and duty to vote. It’s easy to be discouraged by the barrage of negative coverage, but nonetheless, we have an obligation to be informed voters if we seek to bring about the change we so desire. That’s why we, as information providers, want to make sure you have access to non-partisan information that will help you make an informed choice, based on reliable, unbiased facts. Remember this: the source matters.
In order to sift the good (i.e., accurate) information from the bad, we have compiled a list of unbiased websites to help you look at the facts objectively. Stop in at the library and pick up one of our election bookmarks. Do the research. VOTE.
