The NYS Library is once again joining other libraries around the country and the world for #ColorOurCollections.
Originated by another New York library, the library of the New York Academy of Medicine, this week-long coloring fest (February 5-9 this year) invites both children and adults to “explore, color and connect with libraries and their collections.”
For #ColorOurCollections 2018, the NYS Library created a digital coloring book of 10 images, including:
- Examples of design and decorative arts from our collections of late 19th and early 20th century books and periodicals;
- Political cartoons related to women’s suffrage from the newspaper collection; and
- Original artwork from Manuscripts and Special Collections.
