#ColorOurCollections

With #ColorOurCollections, the Oak Park Public Library joins a national celebration this February to promote historic digital collections.

Special Collections curates specific cultural and heritage collections that reflect the unique values and enduring legacies of Oak Park. #ColorOurCollections provides a fun way to interact with special collections items in person in the Idea Box and on social media.

Want to see more? Browse high resolution images and come visit us Fridays in February during Special Collections Open Houses anytime between 2 and 4 pm.

All February, help us spread the word. Share your colorful creations with us, using @OakParkLibrary and #ColorOurCollections.
