Color Me Happy
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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.

This spring, Radnor Memorial Library will be hosting a book club based off the hit musical Hamilton. “Book club” is a loose term because, while we will be reading books, we will participate in a hip hop dance class, cooking lesson, create Lego stop-animation shorts and more. Participants will receive copies of the books and other swag.  Don't say no to this... YOU can be in the room where it happens. Not familiar with the musical? No problem. (But really, you should pick up the cast recording, available at both the Library and online with your Library card.)  The Library will provide pizza.  Teen Reading Lounge is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Book Club series for kids
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Join us for a 6-week journey through the book Pax, by Sara Pennypacker! 

This Book Club is for kids ages 8 - 10 years. There is no need to read this book on your own, as Miss Devon will be reading aloud throughout the series. We will listen, write, draw, and act out scenes from this thrilling adventure story!

More about this book:

PAX

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. 

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.

THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN
12:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us in celebrating the career of Debbie Reynolds by watching The Unsinkable Molly Brown at the Upper Darby/Sellers Library!

Reynolds won a 1964 Best Actress Oscar nomination as the backwoods heroine who survives the Titanic and the snobbery of Denver society. Screen-debuting Harve Presnell reprises his stage role of Johnny, who has a heartful-and-a-half of love for Molly. Johnny wasn't alone. Astronauts Gus Grissom and John Young so admired the movie they named their Gemini 3 spacecraft Molly Brown. (from the DVD package)

This free progam will be held in the library's 2nd floor meeting room. There is no elevator.

Light refreshments will be available.

Registration is required. Only adults may register for this program.

Color Me Happy
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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.

More about this book:

PAX

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. 

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.
