When coloring books say “ages 2 and up,” they mean it

When coloring books say “ages 2 and up,” they mean it

ISHPEMING — Coloring books aren’t just for kids anymore!

Some locals gathered at the Ishpeming Carnegie Public Library to prove it. Thursday night was the first meeting of the year for Outside the Lines. The club meets twice a month to revisit a favorite childhood pastime: coloring.

“It’s sort of a creative outlet, but it’s low pressure. So, if you feel like you’re not a super great artist or it it’s something new that you want to try, but you don’t want it to be too stressful then I think it’s a great way to kind of get into that,” said Kelsey Boldt, Assistant Librarian at the Library, “It’s a fun way for adults to kind of de–stress and relax. We’re going to listen to an audio book and kind of just socialize and get to know each other!”

The class is free for anyone who wants to come. Coloring books and color pencils are provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own.

The next meeting is on January 21st at 6:00 p.m.
