Coloring for Adults
Monday, August 26 - 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.

Just mirror the movements of the instructor and reduce tension, improve breathing, and increase flexibility.

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

Wii Love Bowling! 11th Annual Competition! 4th Tuesday Forum
Tuesday, August 27 - 10:00am | DeForest Area Community & Senior Center


The Library team has been the winning team only one time since 2009. We've got a feeling that this will be our year to beat the Center's team again. Come and watch the virtual pins go down while you cheer us on! Wii Bowling is good for burning calories, improving strength and stability, and for having a Wii bit of fun!

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