Welcome

Welcome to the #ColorOurCollections website! This website contains coloring books created by libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions as part of the #ColorOurCollections campaign.

From February 6-10, 2017, libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions around the world shared free coloring sheets and books based on materials in their collections. Though the campaign week is over, the coloring books will remain available on this website. Users are invited to download and print the coloring sheets and share their filled-in images, using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.

All content is sourced from the collections of participating institutions. With participants from around the globe, this campaign offers an opportunity to explore the vast and varied offerings of the library world, without geographical constraints. Last year’s campaign included over 210 institutions and featured coloring sheets based on children’s classics, natural histories, botanicals, anatomical atlases, university yearbooks, patents, and more.

#ColorOurCollections will return February 5-9, 2018! Stay tuned for more information as the campaign week nears.
