Captiva Memorial Library presents activities for December

By Staff | Nov 28, 2018

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

ADULT PROGRAMS

– Dec. 8: Holiday Golf Cart Parade at 3:30 p.m.

Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”

– 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.
