Coloring is making a major comeback as adults are drawn to its therapeutic qualities. Come out this summer and get artsy at your Cobb County libraries with Arts and Crafts programs at cobbcat.org/srpcrafts.

“Coloring reminds adults of the stress free days we experienced as child, which helps us relax.  It also helps to keep our brain active and fine motor skills sharp,” says Keith Mazonkey, Wellness Coordinator for Cobb County.

Coloring Books from the past
Throw away an unfinished coloring book? Never! Library Communications Technician Aimee Boothe (left) and Gritters Library Branch Manager Jennifer Wells show off their coloring books from 1980 and 1990, respectively.

Librarian Jennifer Wells was well ahead of the adult coloring trend, as she colored in college to blow off stress. Now you can join her at Gritters Library from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Coloring Book Wednesdays all summer beginning June 8. Bring your friends and family to color and draw. Supplies will be available or bring your own. (770) 528-2524.
