Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

The first program in our Making Sense of Current Events series will be "Assessing the Threat of Islamic-Related Terrorism." There is no doubt that the fear of Islamic-related terrorism is a politically charged topic in the US. That fear is understandable after the attacks of 9/11 and the more recent attacks in San Bernardino and Orlando. Yet current research from a variety of sources suggests that this fear is vastly overblown. Join us at the Furness Library as David L. Johnston (Visiting Scholar at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania, and the Adjunct Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary and St. Joseph's University) gives an overview of the research and helps us delve into this important topic.

Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. In 1 hour you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

Come hear Immaculata Professor William Watson, tell the tale of Duffy’s Cut, a relatively unknown chapter of local history.  Duffy’s Cut, is the site of a mass murder on the Main Line during the cholera epidemic of 1832.  Fifty seven Irish immigrants from Donegal, Tyrone and Derry, stepped off the ship John Stamp in June, 1832, to work on the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad in modern Malvern, and by the end of the summer, they were all dead from violence and cholera.  Archival and archaeological research conducted over a decade has revealed the tragic lives and deaths of these Irish immigrant railroaders, and the work is ongoing.
