The Second Floor Gallery

The Art Institute in Chicago isn’t the only place in Illinois to see great works of art. In partnership with Gallery 510 (an Illinois art guild), The Second Floor Gallery at the Decatur Public Library features exhibits and displays of local and regional artists. The Gallery also presents programs and events based on particular exhibit topics.

The Gallery is open Monday-Thursday from 9am-9pm; Friday-Saturday from 9am-5:30pm; Sundays from 1pm-5pm. Admission is free, and citizens are welcome to attend all events.

Adult Coloring Night

Who said coloring was just for children? Though certainly more popular in elementary schools, studies have shown that simple creative activities like coloring can help adults relax, destress, and promote their overall personal wellness. Even if you don’t feel like the creative type, Adult Coloring Night is a great way to have a little fun and meet new people.

This event happens every Thursday from 5pm to 7pm in the Adult Coloring Room. All supplies are provided, along with light refreshments and calming background music. This event is free and open to adults 18 years and older.


Yoga can provide practitioners with a wide variety of health benefits, including:

  • Improved flexibility
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Weight reduction
  • Stress relief
  • Injury prevention
  • Mental wellness
  • Better circulation & cardio health

For those who’d like to reap these benefits, come out to the Decatur Public Library’s Yoga classes every Tuesday from 12 pm to 1 pm at the Madden Auditorium. Classes are free and open to the public.


Based on the international TEDTalks sensation, TEDx is a local, self-organized event that combines live speakers and TEDTalks videos for an evening of deep, introspective discussions in a small group. The Decatur Public Library will be hosting a TEDx event on May 28 from 6 pm to 8 pm in the Madden Auditorium. The theme will be Only Connect.

You can register your spot online or call 217-424-2900 x. 7 for more information.
