Color with Joe! A coloring club....for grown-ups!

Love adult coloring books? Enjoy them in the company of friends!!
Every Saturday at 10:00 am, beginning on May 6th, Lamar Public Library will be hosting “Color with Joe”: coloring for adults served with coffee!

In case you haven’t heard, coloring programs for grown-ups are taking off at libraries!
Coloring helps us de-stress because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. Coloring generates wellness, quietness, and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses, and creativity.

Coloring fans come by the hobby for varying reasons. While some may consider it a social activity, others see it as an easy way to escape the everyday grind — a way to practice mindfulness and enjoy being in the moment without all that “concentrate on your breathing” stuff.

Come and experience the latest trend in relaxation: adult coloring books.

Relax, reduce stress, and leave feeling restored!
Coloring books and supplies will be provided by the library, but participants are welcome to bring their own materials from home.

The THIRD SATURDAY of EVERY MONTH!!

What’s the connection between Legos and books, you ask?
Promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving—things they’ll carry with them throughout their school years, says “Play = Learning,” a recent study by Dorothy Singer, a senior research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Psychology and Child Study Center

Play is one of the primary ways children learn about the world. General knowledge is an important literacy skill that helps children understand books and stories once they begin to read. LEGO literacy promotes play with the basics of language encouraging children to experiment, practice, create words, rhymes, learn new vocab, letters and construct meaning using LEGO bricks
• Offers physical and mechanical skills in a library setting
• Encourages play between parents and children.
• Encourages phonic awareness and vocabulary through play
• Promotes foundation, early, family literacy and numeracy and digital literacy skills in a non-threatening environment
• Promotes problem solving and learning though tactile and kinesthetic means.
• FUN!!
The Lego Club is scheduled to meet on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 10:00 amECANUARYHIhe
