May 21 – May 27 Weekly Events
at the Elsie Quirk Library

Visit the Elsie Quirk Library today for a variety of activities that will accommodate all ages. Most individuals may not immediately consider their local library as a place to participate in coloring and certainly not geared towards adults. The latest trend of adult coloring workshops has been an ongoing program here the past few months and been met with excited participants. Recent studies have actually concluded that coloring can reduce stress. It’s also a wonderful way to be creative without having to be a skilled artist. Bring your inner child to today’s workshop and enjoy the nostalgia of your younger days. All supplies will be provided.

Here are the library events for this week:
