About UBC Library’s Digital Colouring Books

Experience history at the tip of your pencil crayons! UBC Library’s digital colouring books aim to inspire creativity and spark curiosity through the art found in our digital and physical collections. We are joining the New York Academy of Medicine Library and others to offer this unique way to engage with library content.

Featured Book

Taking Flight: Birds in Nature

This year’s digital colouring book celebrates conservation and sustainability. The book features illustrated birds in nature found in UBC Library’s Open Collections from B.C. Historical Books and Historical Children’s Literature Collections. Take a creative break each month and join us in celebrating #ColourOurCollectionsUBC.
