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.

#ColorOurCollections week returns February 5-9, 2018! Libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions around the world will share free coloring sheets and books based on materials in their collections. 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. Institutions have contributed coloring sheets based on children’s classics, natural histories, botanicals, anatomical atlases, university yearbooks, patents, and much more.

Coloring books created for the campaign will remain available on the this website so you can #ColorOurCollections throughout the year, but be sure to follow along on social media using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections on February 5-9, 2018!
