Librarians: Adult Coloring Books Need Not Be A Solitary Activity

Have you been caught up in the adult coloring books trend? Does putting colored pencil to paper give you hours of therapeutic pleasure? If it does, it need not be a solitary activity.

The American Library Association reveals that adult coloring book enthusiasts have been encouraged to meet in libraries across America and turn coloring into a social activity. And it's not just for younger adults.

Ann Daigle says her Florida library's "Adult Coloring: Color Me Happy" club helps older people meet each other.

“There’s a lot of laughter. They’re coloring but they’re talking. It’s stress-free, and they do comment when they leave that they feel so much better and it did them good to get out of the house and see other people," she explains.

The Associated Press reveals that Meetup.com has become a popular way of organizing coloring groups as well.

The coloring craze continues to grow, too, with coloring books nabbing the New York Times best-selling list's top 10 spots for games and activities in January.

Do you enjoy adult coloring books, and have you colored as a social activity?
