The audiobook and ebook are available via Libby. Visit the circulation desk if you need help accessing a copy of the book to read.

March’s adult coloring event is being scheduled for Tuesday, March 8 at 6 p.m. Stop in for a relaxing night and good company. Colors, coloring sheets and snacks are provided as the evening is sponsored by Pac N’ Save.

After school coloring will also be offered on both Friday, March 11 and Friday, March 25 at 3:30 p.m. both days. Relax and get creative after a busy school week. Adults will be on hand for conversation as coloring pages, art utensils of all kinds and a light snack will be provided.
