For several years, the NYS Library has joined other libraries and cultural institutions around the country and the world for #ColorOurCollections.
What is #ColorOurCollections?
Originated by the library of the New York Academy of Medicine, #ColorOurCollections takes place during the first week in February. The week-long "coloring fest" on social media invites both children and adults to "explore, color and connect" with libraries and their collections.
