Celebrate National Coloring Book Day
August 2, 2016: A Day to Relax and Color
Abbotsford Regional Hospital & Cancer Centre Library
8:30 am – 3:30 pm

BC Cancer Agency and Fraser Health Library staff invite you to join us on Tuesday, August 2nd for a colouring break. Crayons, colouring pages and blank paper (for you DIYers) will be supplied; you simply need to bring yourself, and maybe a colouring buddy.

Please feel free to bring your own colouring books or to pick up a page for colouring later.  All visitors (even non-colourers) will be eligible for one of our door prizes! (and a cookie!)

We look forward to seeing you!

Anita (E-Rad), Michelle and Pamela
