Coloring Books are not just for kids anymore! Join us for a relaxing hour of just coloring (and chatting, if you’d like). Touted as a way to help adults “de-stress and self-express”, the BFL is happy to bring this form of “mindful or mindless” activity to its patrons  ? We’ll supply the adult coloring pages and coloring pencils or markers. Feel free to bring your own supplies if you’d like. All adults welcome! *All materials supplied by the Friends of the Bacon Free Library
