The Champlain Library is asking patrons to pick up a coloring sheet from the library during curbside pickup hours, color the image and submit it to the library as part of National Crayon Day.

Each year, on March 31, children and adults alike, pick up their favorite colors for National Crayon Day.  Opening up a box of crayons opens up a world of imagination and hours of fun.

Crayons not only add color to our lives, but they’ve also been held as an analogy for the colorfulness of the human race and our ability to live together in a diverse world. Robert Fulghum, the American author, once said, “We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”

Submissions to the Champlain Library must be received by March 31.  Any patron who participates will have a chance to win a box of crayons and a colouring book. So don’t delay, get out your crayons and color away!
