Gifts to Melt Your Heart

Aurora Public Library District is kicking off the holidays in late November with a fun make it-take it workshop at the Dillsboro Branch. Join us on Tuesday, November 27, from 4 pm – 6 pm for an afternoon of fun as we make a decorated gift jar of Christmas-themed soy wax melts. We’ll make mini wax melts in fun shapes and wonderful scents. While they are setting up, we will decorate a jar to hold the melts and make a gift tag. You’ll have one adorable gift checked off your gift-giving list by the end of the workshop! Space is limited, so reserve your spot today by calling the Dillsboro Branch Library at 812-954-4151.

Color Me Calm: Adult Coloring Program

Have you been feeling more stressed than usual lately? The Aurora Public Library and the Dillsboro Public Library will be hosting an adult coloring program throughout the month of January to help relieve that stress and promote calmness.

“Color Me Calm” is a coloring program for adults to attend at the Aurora and Dillsboro branches. Coloring pages and colored pencils will be provided at both library locations for adults to come in and color at their own pace. There will be spots designated in the Libraries for “Chatty Color” and “Quiet Color” for guests to color and socialize as they wish.

Coloring as an adult promotes wellness, quietness, and  meditation. Coloring also reduces stress and anxiety. The act of coloring can spark your inner-child, imagination, and creativity. Each branch will hold a coloring contest that will be judged by an outside source. Prizes will be awarded to the winners at the end of the month. Participants are encouraged to leave their finished artwork to be displayed at both branches throughout the month of January.

The Aurora Public Library’s “Color Me Calm” program will be held on Mondays, January 9, 23, and 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “Color Me Calm” at Dillsboro Public Library will be held on Wednesdays, January 4, 11, 18, and 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration is not required. Come to color and stay as long as you like.
