Pokemon Go is here!

WHAT IS POKEMON GO?

Pokemon Go is a smart phone app game that released July 7th here in the US. People who have downloaded this game travel their towns and thanks to Google Maps and this game, can encounter pokemon in the real world to catch. Pokemon has been a popular series for almost 20 years and continues to entertain people of all ages with the show, games, and now on smartphones.

The Cushing Library is happy to learn that we were selected as a Pokemon Stop! This means that anyone who plays the game can stop by to rest on their pokemon journey and stock up on Pokeballs and other items. All you have to do is tap the Pokestop when you’re here and spin our icon to get items. We are also next door to a pokemon gym, so come relax here while keeping an eye on who’s the top trainer!

For more information as to what Pokemon Go is or how it works there is a great article that can be found here.

POKEMON LURES will be released here on certain dates and times. Check in for the next date so you can come catch the horde of pokemon in a cool building and meet your fellow trainers.

The next Pokemon Lure will be released:

Adult coloring

Coloring isn’t just for kids any more!

Are you on board with the adult coloring book movement? Do you find it soothing to color? Want to find out if you want to buy your own coloring book?

Then join us on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6:30pm for adult coloring!

You can bring your own coloring book, zen doodles, or connect the dots and coloring supplies or use ours we provide  and just sit back and relax with other adults as you take some much deserved ‘ME’ time.

This is an adult activity so we ask that you don’t bring your children to color with you.

 

We hope to see you there!
