The New York Academy of Medicine Library, for the fifth year in a row, has released their #ColorOurCollections free coloring pages based on material from over 50 library/museum/archive organizations around the world.

Take a look at recommendations from Smithsonian Magazine and Lifehacker.

The Library of Virginia's coloring book celebrates the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granting women the right to vote.

The University of Sussex Library Special Collections/The Keep's coloring (colouring?) book has a range of human/animal hybrid creatures from 17th century.

The Northern Illinois University Albert Johannsen and Edward T. LeBlanc Collections "Nickels and Dimes" coloring book includes illustrations from inexpensive fiction books between 1860 and 1915.

I love this type of thing, not because I partake of coloring, but because it's offering a different way to engage with the museum collections.
