Preschool Story Time
Tuesday, Jul. 24, 11-11:30am

Adult Coloring Group
Wednesday, Jul. 25, 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!

Come to this talk and see what recycling and contamination means for you, your town, and the recycling market. Ecomaine staff will present about where your recycling goes, how it's sorted and why it matters what we put in the recycling bin versus the trash can.
