Monday, September 24 - 6:00pm | Room C


coloring

Coloring is an activity we think of as being for kids. However, it can be beneficial for adults.

Coloring helps us de-stress because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. Coloring generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Coloring sheets and colored pencils will be provided. Adults only, please.

3D Printing Design
Monday, September 24 - 6:00pm | The Workshop


Design an object with this free entry level 3D design website. Then once you have finished your design we will 3D print it for you to take home and admire. Because 3D printing is slow most prints will have to be picked up at a later date.

The Garbo: The Musical Music & Lyrics by Jillann Gabrielle - 4th Tuesday Forum
Tuesday, September 25 - 10:00am | DeForest Area Community & Senior Center


Join us for an original one-woman musical about the enigmatic Swedish film star, Greta Garbo!

Considered by many the greatest film actress of all time, her image was that of androgynous glamour. Dissatisfied with Hollywood scripts, and her natural beauty starting to fade, she retired from the screen at 36 and became a recluse in Manhattan. Miss G’s spicy and revealing story answers all the burning questions the world has been dying to know about “The Garbo.”

This program is part of the Library’s outreach programming. It is free and open to everyone in the community. Refreshments will be served.

This library outreach program is sponsored by an anonymous donor and hosted by the Center, the Library and the DeForest Area Historical Society.

If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate, please contact library staff.

Meet Kathy Collins author of The Mystic Chaplain
Tuesday, September 25 - 6:30pm | Community Room


“The passion I have for this work comes from deep inside. I do not think I ever experienced anything like it before.”

Kathy Collins, who lives in Sun Prairie, is a chaplain at Meriter Hospital in Madison. Her memoir, offers deep trust in embracing life’s final chapter with self compassion, safety and security. Kathy shares what she’s learned not only as a chaplain working primarily in the ER and ICU, but as one who endured through many years battling cancer that nearly took her life. After her health improved she started volunteer hospice work and was accepted into the hospital chaplain program at Meriter Hospital.
