color me rad(d)

coloring books aren’t just for kids anymore. it seems that adults have really taken a keen interest in them, thus sending sales soaring for the coloring book industry. one of the primary reasons grown-ups are drawn to coloring books is they are a source of stress relief, and with everything we need to tend to in our lives (career, family, education, etc.) it’s nice to have a few minutes of quiet time to shade that unicorn or car whatever hue we please.

but coloring books are no longer relegated to the privacy or our home or office. libraries and museums are joining in the fun, too, by asking patrons to stop in and color reproductions of pieces from their collections. this week only (Feb. 1-5), a number of institutions will be participating in Color Our Collections Week. find out if any locations near you are offering this exciting opportunity!
