Ongoing Experience at Your Library
Coloring pages and books are becoming all the rage among adults. Coloring can provide a calming effect and help deal with stress and reconnect to a more carefree time in your life – your childhood. If you would like to try coloring – check out the library corner with coloring sheets and pencils for you to use while in the library. Materials are provided by the Friends of the Ocean Shores Library.
