Surprise benefit of watching DVD’s

Did you know that watching DVD’s with closed captioning on also increases language skills?  Closed captioning is great for non-English speakers, hearing impaired and children. Speaking of languages, check out our Coastline Libraries website Mango is a great way to learn a new language and is free using your Library card.  Also free are car repair and small engine repair online using your Library card at www.cooslibraries.org/content/elibrary. Don’t miss the free genealogy search website if you have a curiosity about your own history.  So much to learn, see and do your Library can take you there and you never have to leave your chair.

CONTINUING PROGRAMS…..

Lego Time is the First Saturday of every month from 2:00-4:00. Children ages 4-102 are welcome to come and create and stretch their imaginations.

Adult coloring is the Second Saturday of each month from 1:00-3:00. Adults can bring their creativity and relax while they color with our supplies, or bring their own.  Over the summer, CBS News did a story on adult coloring books and the meetups that have sprung up as a result of the craze. “It’s almost hypnotic — the scratching of the pencil on the page; you’re creating something beautiful that you might not do under other circumstances,” Jean Roberts told CBS News.  Last April, Roberts posted a message on Facebook inviting other adults to color with her. That led to the creation of the Cornwall Coloring Club, a monthly group that sips, shades and socializes. The goal is to unplug from the digital and immerse in the analog. Some experts say they’ve found evidence that coloring does have specific health benefits. Coloring engages both sides of the brain and it’s been shown to reduce blood pressure and relieve stress.
