Sharpen your colored pencils! Tomorrow, August 2nd , is National Coloring Book Day! To celebrate, we’ve put together a second set of coloring pages based on images in our collection. The booklet, which features 11 pages of pretty pictures begging to be colored, is available as a downloadable pdf file (10 MB) on our webpage here.

Shade in a few sea shells, diatom cells or fancy French fashion plates. Share your creations via social media and tag us (@SILibraries on Twitter and Instagram). We can’t wait to see what vibrant combinations you come up with.

In need of coloring inspiration? Check out Color in a New Light, our newest exhibition which just happens to be focused on the subject. Want to download our first coloring booklet? Find it here.

Special thanks to Pamella Selby, graphic design intern, for creating the lovely coverpage.
