Michelle Perez, of Florence, colors with a pencil during a meeting of an adult coloring group called "Coloring and Kumquats" Thursday at Lilly Library in Florence. The group was organized by her sister, Kim Perez, who is the children's librarian, and Theo Hull, the young adults librarian. Adult coloring has become increasingly popular in the past few years and some coloring books have become best sellers. Michelle took up the hobby about two years ago after breaking her foot. "It's so relaxing. I can do my own thing with it," she said. Kim claims it's like meditation. The group meets Thursdays from 6:30-8 p.m.
