In honor of the annual #ColorOurCollections week in February, we invite you to redecorate our collections. The New York Academy of Medicine launched the idea to merge the adult coloring book craze with digital collections in 2016, and libraries around the world joined in. This is a great opportunity to highlight our collections and have some fun!

To share some University of Idaho themed coloring, we created coloring books featuring illustrations from early editions of the University of Idaho's yearbook, The Gem of the Mountains. You can download ready to print PDFs of the coloring books below.

Go wild and Color Our Collections! Please remember to share a picture of your coloring with us @UofILibrary and the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for updates.

Happy coloring!
