If you're looking for unique and interesting coloring pages or some wildly varied black and white illustrations, these 100+ museums and libraries have you covered.

Since 2016, the New York Academy of Medicine has invited libraries and universities to submit pages to be downloaded and colored (or printed and enjoyed) from their collections.

These aren't your everyday coloring pages; they are curated from the collections of libraries and universities that are participating in this year's #ColorOurCollections event.

Some participants offer one coloring page from their collection and others have compiled more than one page into a downloadable book.

The pages I viewed were safe for all ages, and all are in PDF files for easy downloading and printing.

There's a list of links to the 2020 Participating Institutions. The event ran from February 3-7, 2020, but it appears the coloring sheets are still available for download.

Some (but not all) of the Color Our Collections participants from 20172018 and 2019 still have coloring sheets or books available for download. There's a wide variety so you're sure to find something you like.

fyi the link to "Download Free Coloring Pages From 100+ Top Libraries and Museums" replies "Error establishing a database connection".

The link seems to be working now.

It's up and down for me. Sometimes it returns the database error and sometimes it loads but the site doesn't seem to be loading properly. Looks like they are having issues with the server. I'll keep an eye on it, thanks for the heads up.

This page has links to some of the participants and a partial list at the bottom of the page.
