Library Book Sale


Hi there! 

We’ve been having such a great day today at our Friends of the Library Book sale. The book sale will continue until 3pm. Stop by and check it out!





Teen Graffiti Program


Our Teen Graffiti program was a big hit! The kids really enjoyed experimenting with all types of art including street art, painting, and coloring. It was so much fun watching them play and create something that they could call their own. Check out pictures from our programs and some of the awesome pieces they made.

New Coloring Station!


Kenmore Branch Library invites you to come color with us! 

We’ve set up Coloring Stations for both kids and adults. Pages and colored pencils are provided. 

According to a Huffington Post article titled “Coloring isn’t Just For Kids. It Can Actually Help Adults combat Stress” coloring can generate wellness by stimulating brain areas related to motor skills and creativity. Psychologist Gloria Martinez Ayala says that “the action ]of coloring] involves both logic, by which we color form, and creativity, when mixing and matching colors. The relaxation that it provides lowers the activity of the amygdala, a basic part of the our brain involved in controlling emotion that is affected by stress.” Coloring has a de-stressing effect because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not our worries.
