DECEMBER EVENTS:

Winter Is Coming Dance Party! December 9
The Dorset Library is hosting a “Winter is Coming” dance party on Saturday December 9th from 6-8pm… This fun, free dance is open to all, including families.  There will be snacks and dance music (appropriate for all ages… young, medium and old) including some holiday favorites!   Bring your old friends, make some new ones… and have a great time!

Coloring for Adults at the Dorset Library  December 12           
Come relieve some of your pre-holiday stress with the library’s new ‘coloring for adults’ group!  The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, December 12th from 5-6pm. We will have a selection of books and pages for you to color: birds, mandalas, gardens, animals and more.  We will have a selection of colored pencils and crayons, but feel free to bring your own supplies.  Since this is an adult only coloring group, we will serve wine and cheese!

Learn Origami at the Dorset Library December 14
The Dorset Library presents origami instructor, Minga Tse, on December 14th at 5pm.  Minga, who has loved art and crafts from an early age, was born in Taiwan and came to America at the age of 8.  Minga reconnected with paper folding artwork and has refined her skills through research and practice.  Adults can learn how to make origami that can be used to top holiday presents and gift wrapping, or just as lovely art. This will not be a formal class, but a casual sharing of Minga’s skills.  All supplies will be provided for this free event, but we do ask that you RSVP by 5pm on the 13th.  We will also be serving wine and cheese.

COMING SOON:
Star Wars Party January 20th
