Color our collections

The adult coloring craze has swept the nation and University of Dayton Libraries is part of the fun.

One of our stress relief activities during finals week in December 2015 was a coloring station that proved to be very popular with students and staff. Many of our coloring sheets came from websites with free downloadables, but we also created special UD-centric pages. Roesch Library’s graphic design specialist designed coloring sheets using the stained glass images from the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception windows. You can download them for free here.

We're joining The Smithsonian Institute in promoting the hashtag #ColorOurCollections by providing free, downloadable coloring sheets created using images from their collections. Other museums and libraries have posted some really cool coloring sheets:

If you color a sheet, please show us your masterpiece! Tag us @roeschlibrary on Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.
