Color Our Collections Coloring Fest

The Helen Fowler Library takes part in #ColorOurCollections, a week-long coloring fest on social media, generally occurring the first full week of February, alongside libraries, archives and other cultural institutions around the world. Using materials from our collections, we are sharing free coloring content with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and inviting followers to color along and get creative with our collections. #ColorOurCollections was launched by The New York Academy of Medicine Library in 2016.

Break open the colored pencils or crayons and enjoy the soothing exercise of coloring our past submissions for Color Our Collections. You can print four botanical illustration coloring pages.
