AVON PARK, Fla.  – July 19, 2016 – With the adult coloring craze in full swing, the South Florida State College Library joins the celebration of National Coloring Book Day with a color-in featuring a day-long coloring party, free coloring pages, and a drawing to win one of several coloring-themed prize packs.

The SFSC Library Color-In will be held Tuesday, Aug. 2, at the South Florida State College Library, second floor of Building Y, Highlands Campus, in Avon Park. Take Entrance 3 or 4 from West College Drive. Participants are welcome to drop by the library between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

While the library has offered coloring opportunities for both the community and college students during final examination weeks to help students de-stress, this will be the first event dedicated to coloring.

“I’m excited about this event,” said Claire A. Miller, SFSC librarian. “The combination of coloring and libraries is a natural one. Coloring is a way to relax, focus your attention, and be creative–all activities that libraries love to encourage.”

Miller has designed a custom coloring page promoting the Aug. 2 celebration that can be downloaded from the SFSC Library Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/SFSCLibrary/), or picked up at the library circulation desk.
