Color Our Collections
Grab your crayons and colored pencils, it's time to #ColorOurCollections!
#ColorOurCollections is a weeklong event on social media during which libraries and archives from around the world share images from their collections and encourage the public to color and put their own special mark on them. Here at the Folger, we have provided images from materials in our collection for you to make your own.
From February 1-5, 2016, download and color any of the images we have provided here and share them with us on Twitter or Instagram @FolgerLibrary using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and be sure to follow us so you don't miss out on everyone else's work. We can't wait to see your creativity and vibrant interpretations of our collection!
