Grab your crayons and colored pencils, it's time to #ColorOurCollections!

#ColorOurCollections is a week-long social media event during which libraries and archives from around the world share images from their collections and encourage you to color them in and make them your own. We've pulled all kinds of images from our collection here at the Folger, mixing 16th-century woodcuts with illustrations from Shakespeare's plays.

From February 5 9 , 2018, 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. 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!
