COME MEET OUR LIBRARY WRITER-IN-RESIDENCE Friday, October 9th at 5:00 p.m.

The Graves Memorial Public Library and MWPA are thrilled to announce Bridget M. Burns as the inaugural Graves Library Writer-in-Residence.

Ms. Burns, a graduate of UMaine Farmington’s BFA program in Creative Writing, will use her residency to work on researching and writing nonfiction about Freedom Farm in Kennebunkport. The farm (all that remains today is the refurbished barn Ms. Burns now lives in) was used as temporary housing for at least six Eastern European families who were displaced after World War II.

A meet and greet is planned for Friday, October 9th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Light Refreshments will be Served.

Color Me Calm : A New Way to Reduce Stress - Thursday, October 15th at 6:00 p.m.

Thousands of adults around the world have found a new way to relax and unwind.  THEY ARE COLORING...WITH...CRAYONS!   Once used as a hobby or “busy work” just for kids, coloring in a book with crayons or markers has become a major de-stressor for many adults.  The medical field has embraced this age-ole craft and has seen great results in patients with lower blood pressure and reduced anxieties.  Sitting down with friends and neighbors with a fresh box of crayons, colored pencils, markers, and coloring books after a tough day at work or school has proven to rejuvenate and revitalize the creative soul.  By exercising fine motor skills and training the brain to focus, it generates a creative mindset and allows people to relax and take a well-deserved breath.

Please join us on Thursday, October 15th at 6:00 p.m. at the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library, 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport.  Supplies will be provided.
