COLOR ME CALM [2016].jpg

Coloring is just for kids, right? Not anymore! Recently, adults across the country have picked up coloring books as a way to relax and unwind. Join us in the Stow-Munroe Falls Room at the library for an adult coloring session. The health benefits go beyond relaxation, and include exercising fine motor skills and training the brain to focus. Doctors have known about these benefits since the early 1900s. Psychiatrist Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds.
