Adult Coloring Group
Wednesday, Sep. 26, 10:30-11:30am
Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group!

Kora Harp Concert wi
Friday, Oct. 12, 6:30-7:30PM

Sean Gaskell features traditional songs on the 21-stringed West African kora. The kora is native to the Mande peoples who live within the countries of The Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea-Bissau. The music is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as griots (gree-ohs). The kora is a melodic and seemingly peaceful instrument, which is somewhat contrary to its musical repertoire. Many songs tell ancient stories of war and hardship, while others praise people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande Empire. Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh of Brikama and Kane Mathis of Brooklyn, NY. Gaskell has been featured at numerous festivals in the US, The Gambia, and Senegal.

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, visit freeportlibrary.com or call 865-3307.
