Adult Coloring Club (Ages 18 and Up)

Sep 28 2015 6:30 pm

Adult coloring books are gaining in popularity!  Coloring is a wonderful way to reduce stress, clear the mind and meet new friends. 

Does a coloring club sound like something you'd want to attend?  Our library would like your opinion.  We would have our first meeting on Monday, September 28, 2015 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  We will furnish supplies, but you are welcome to bring your own coloring books, colored pencils or markers, etc.

If you are interested, please call the library at (815)389-2495 to sign up.
