Need Stress Relief? Try Coloring!

Have you heard about the new trend of adult coloring?  Lately it has been all over the news.  Adults everywhere are finding relaxation in coloring.  Studies have even shown that coloring uses both sides of the brain and results in stress relief and lower blood pressure. has a huge selection of coloring books, as does Hobby Lobby and Michaels.  Some of our favorites are by Johanna Basford. 

As you can see, the pictures are quite intricate.  The pictures can take several days to color if you are only working on them a few minutes at a time.

Franklin County Library hosted a coloring party on September 10th during the lunch hour and again on September 15th in the evening.

We had about 15 people attend each event and have agreed to make it a monthly coloring club.  Beginning October 8th, Coloring with Friends will meet every 2nd Thursday of the month from 11:30 - 1:30 and again at 5:30.  Everyone is encouraged to attend either or both sessions!  We are displaying our finished creations in the display case downstairs!
