Coloring for Adults
Monday, July 22 - 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.

Meet the Author of Beneath the Flames Gregory Lee Renz
Monday, July 22 - 6:30pm | Community Room


The first rule of firefighting is to never enter a burning building alone. Sometimes rules must be broken, much like writing.

Fire Captain Gregory Lee Renz was involved in a dramatic rescue of two boys from their burning bedroom. He received a series of awards including induction into the Wisconsin Fire and Police Hall of Fame. In 2008 Captain Renz retired, exchanging his turnout gear for a writing desk to pursue his passion, storytelling.

His book, Beneath the Flames, was inspired by two little girls who lived across from his inner-city fire station. Those two girls stayed in his thoughts over the years, demanding he tell.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Library. Copies of Beneath the Flames will be available for purchase.
