Coffee and coloring, journaling workshop at Galion Public Library


Journaling workshop planned Aug. 15

GALION — Summer is over, and it’s time to get organized. Galion Public Library is hosting a Bullet Journaling Workshop, led by Rachel Mendell on Aug. 15 at 6:30 pm in the community room. This is a beginners-level workshop.

Bullet Journals are perfect for people who have a million little to-do lists floating around; people who like pen and paper to-do lists; people who are into goal-setting and habit tracking; people who like stationery, journaling, scrapbooking, beautiful pens, etc.; people who really love planners; people who need a way to stay more organized; people who would really like to keep a journal but have trouble sticking with the habit; people who would love to create their own planner for their specific organizational needs.

Bullet Journaling is the perfect blend of a to-do list, a journal, and a planner. It is adaptable to any lifestyle, and, thus, is able to become whatever the user needs it for. Whether you want to track the books you have read, your daily water intake, your notes from church or an important meeting, or simply have a weekly schedule outline, the bullet journal can be exactly what you need.

Participants will learn a step-by-step process to create a basic weekly outline; discuss organization tips that coincide with maintaining a bullet journal; and share a variety of different uses for a bullet journal. Participants also will receive a spiral-bound notebook, perfect for a beginners bullet journal.

This workshop is free, but space is limited. Call 419-468-3203 or stop by the main circulation desk to reserve your spot.

Coffee and Coloring at the Candi Bar

GALION — Galion Public Library has planned another Coffee and Coloring event. This one is at the Candi Bar in uptown Galion on Aug.30, from 5-7 p.m. It will be a fun evening of coffee, treats, and coloring.

Coloring for adults? Coloring, specifically in adults, has proven to have numerous benefits. Psychologists “prescribe” coloring as an alternative to meditation and other calming and relaxation techniques. It is a productive distraction and beneficial to a better mental and emotional health. Coloring activates parts of the brain that may lead to higher levels of organization, concentration, and focus. Coloring takes us back to a younger time. Set aside the stress for a couple hours of coloring with good friends and your favorite Candi Bar beverage.

The library will provide coloring pages, but participants may bring their own coloring books or pages. Beverages and treats will be available for purchase.

This event is free, but registration is required. Call 419-468-3203 to reserve your spot or stop by the main circulation Desk.
