Enjoy an Evening of Adult Coloring at the Oakland Library

Like meditation, coloring allows the brain to switch off other thoughts and focus.’”

Participants do not need to bring supplies, as the library will supply all required items. To register for this event, contact Susanne at 301-334-3996 or skight@relib.net.
