The Adult Coloring Club is here! Join us at the South Community Library at 2:30 PM on Thursday, October 19 for the first meeting of this new club. We are excited to see where this group might lead us in the world of coloring. Stay for the full two-hours or drop-in as you please. No registration required.

South Community Library

All supplies- coloring sheets, markers, and color pencils- will be provided. If you prefer to bring your own supplies and materials, please bring them with you. All you need to do is come and relax, color and meet new people. Thanks to everyone who provided their feedback about the creation of this new creative outlet. This club will continue to be shaped with your enthusiasm, ideas, and momentum. Don’t be afraid to color outside of the lines!
