Remember how much you enjoyed coloring when you were a child?  Coloring has been shown to be a relaxing stress-reliever for adults as well.  It generates quietness and wellness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses, and creativity. The Loma Colorado Main Library is providing some grown-up pages for adults to color, along with markers and crayons.  Finished pieces will be displayed in the lobby.
