Color Our Collections, February 1-5

Adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and libraries and museums are joining the fun! Inspired and organized by The New York Academy of Medicine Library and the Biodiversity Heritage Library, libraries around the country are sharing images from our collections this week for our users to color by hand.

Color Our Collections social media graphicEach day this week, we will add a new coloring page to social media and this news post. You are invited to download these images, color them, and then share them on social media to @PSULibArchives with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.
