Believe it or not, coloring for adults is all the rage.

The following is from the New York Times article, "Trendy but Calm: Adult Coloring Books Selling Like Crazy":

"People are stressed and anxious all the time," said Jeannine Dillon, Quarto's publisher. "Coloring is a way to calm down and unwind at the end of the day." But art therapy is not the only reason coloring has taken off. As hobbies go, coloring books are incredibly simple: portable, easy to pick up and put down, old-school analog pursuits with no batteries or messages, no calorie-counting, skill-building, classes or scores.

And the finished product is perfect for minimalists. Pottery and paintings demand shelf and wall space; knitted scarves cry out to be worn or bestowed as gifts. But a colored-in page takes up almost no space at all (unless you frame it). So whether you want to be in a state of calm or simply just color in or out of the lines, this program is for you!

This program is free and open to the public. It is held every third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.
