Coffee & Coloring at the Parker Library
We now have a regular ongoing monthly coloring club at the library!
Have you heard? Adult coloring books are all the rage! Month after month, adult coloring books are topping Amazon’s bestseller lists and more and more adults are finding their zen in between the lines of a coloring page. Come to our Coffee and Coloring evening as we relax with a good cup of coffee and an even better coloring book. This program is for adults only.
We are so excited to be in our new library home in the big beautiful room upstairs at the front of the library. You can sign up in advance by clicking the link below. This event does go to a wait-list so please make sure to sign up today. You will receive a reminder email or text as the date gets closer. The Library provides pictures to color for those who haven’t become addicted yet and basic coloring supplies to share. If you are already a Colorist check out the latest adult coloring books, supplies and tips here at ColoringBookAddict.com. Coffee is also provided but you can feel free to bring snacks if you’d like to.

Other Colorado Coloring Groups
Colorado Springs, CO
We are a group of ladies who gather together for fellowship and coloring. It is a time to talk, laugh, maybe even shed a tear or two, and do some coloring, of course. Join the Facebook group linked above for more details about meetups!
Colorado Springs, CO
We’ll provide the pictures, crayons and colored pencils or bring your own if you prefer. You provide the time and creativity. No rules here – you may color outside the lines. Red grass and green sky – What a concept! Have some fun with us. Attendees must be 18 years or older.
When the going gets tough, real women (and men) COLOR! Coloring not only brings back happy memories of childhood; it promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation. The act of coloring engages your hands as well as your mind, releasing serotonin… and that makes you HAPPY! So step away from the digital world of computers and electronics, and join us for an evening of conversation, creativity and most of all… COLOR!
Join other creatively minded community members, bring your girlfriends or book club for a unique evening inspired by the new trend of therapeutic coloring. We’ll provide the coloring books, colored pencils and a few book recommendations that escape the ordinary from two members of our staff: Sarah Taylor and Lisa Ekelman. Feel free to color inside or outside the lines! Check the events calendar for more details on dates and times.
