National Coloring Book Day observed at Gentry Public Library
Wednesday, August 9, 2017
Though many may not have known it and few officially observed it, Aug. 2 was National Coloring Book Day and the day was observed at the Gentry Public Library with both adults and children coming in to participate by coloring a coloring book page or two. The day started in 1970 when a coloring book company published a coloring book for adults. Since then, coloring for both children and adults has grown and the day's popularity has increased as well.
