Celebrate National Coloring Book Day @ Your Library

 Celebrate National Coloring Book Day @ Your Library
Celebrate your creativity this August by coloring at a library near you

In honor of National Coloring Book Day, August 2, Cumberland County Public Library has compiled a full month of coloring programs for children, families and adults. The coloring craze has captivated creative and colorful hearts across the world, and a library near you is equipped with coloring books, sheets, pencils, markers and crayons. Bring your children to the Youth Services department within any of our eight branches for coloring sheets featuring our very own mascot, C.C. Leopard. The library is also giving a free coloring book to children who sign up for their very own library card.
