Captiva Memorial Library presents activities for October

By Staff | Sep 26, 2018

The Captiva Memorial Library, at 11560 Chapin Lane, is offering the following free programs for adults and children during the month of October:

ADULT PROGRAMS

– Coloring for Grown-ups

(daily during operating hours)

The repetitive motion involved in coloring has a calming effect and adults have found the childhood activity a refreshing way to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring about more mindfulness. Participants may bring their own materials or use those provided.

– Checkers

(daily during operating hours)

Play classic checkers, “the game of games,” or try other versions such as Fox and Geese, Give Away, Shifting Pyramids, Corner Checkers or Goban. Instructions included. Alternatively, reverse the field and play Tic Tac Toe or Super Tic Tac Toe.

CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS

Drop-in and see a book display about apples. Color a paper apple to add to the apple garland. The library will hang the apple garland in the Children’s Room.

– Oct. 9-13: Apple Picking Time
