Coffee & Coloring

Coloring isn't just for kids anymore; it's a great way for adults to let the stress of the day (or week) just melt away. So grab a cup of coffee and a coloring book!

Coffee & Coloring is held on the third Thursday of each month from 1 pm - 3 pm. All supplies, and coffee, are provided. We have a large selection of coloring pages and mediums for you to use. Already have a project going? Bring your project or supplies to the library and join us for a few hours of stress-relieving coffee, conversation, and coloring!
