Starting in June on 6/16, we're rescheduling Coloring to once a month on the third Thursday. Same process, though...drop in anytime between 12 & 2, bring coffee, bring a friend. We'll supply pencils and some beautiful designs. Just head into the Conti Room for relaxation, quiet and creativity.... and maybe a little background music. Does coloring really de-stress?
The library will be closed on Sundays until mid-September. All other hours remain the same:
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
