WESTFIELD, NJ - The Westfield Memorial Library continues to offer the popular Coloring for Adults Tuesday workshops on March 8, April 12 and May 10 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The library is also offering a new Accounting Basics Demystified Class Parts I and II on Wednesday, March 9 and Thursday, April 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

The Coloring Workshops offer adults a few unhurried hours to spend with a coloring book, accompanied by tea and coffee. The library provides the books, which have abstract, intricate and geometric designs, as well as pens and crayons.

Accounting Basics Demystified, Parts I and II, are for those who are frightened by accounting terminology or new to the concepts of accounting and finance. Participants will become familiar with the terminology and basics so that they will be able to understand financial statements and the accounting process, and how to read an annual report and to apply and interpret ratios.
