Upcoming Events

meditative coloring photo

Can you remember the sense of peace and enjoyment you felt while coloring as a child? Use colored pencils or gel pens to create a meditative state.  Repetitive motions such as coloring (or running, walking, dancing) can help strengthen your focus and easily shift your attention back to a relaxed state. Stressful thoughts and future worries can be simply pushed aside as you take time to enjoy the present. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.

captain underpants

This month’s movie features Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two overly imaginative pranksters who spend hours in a treehouse creating comic books. When their mean principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the mischievous boys accidentally hypnotize him into thinking that he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

Rated PG.

Free popcorn available while supplies last. Beverages in closed containers are allowed. Young children must be accompanied by an adult. This program is proudly sponsored by F.O.L.K.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library at least 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
