Kansas City Public library has released the second edition of the Missouri Valley Special Collections ‘Coloring Kansas City’ coloring books, which feature women who made Kansas City history.

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the collection features eight incredible women including Ida Bowman Becks, Sarah Chandler Coates, Emma Lard Longan, and more.

Passed in 1919, the 19th Amendment was ratified and certified in August of 1920, granting women the right to vote.

Each illustration was drawn by Special Collections Librarian Joanna Marsh. The research and content was gathered by Missouri Valley Special Collections staff, and was produced and published by the Kansas City Public Library Public Affairs Department.

“I hope the book serves as a fun and creative way to introduce people to these remarkable Kansas City women and their unique contributions to history,” said Marsh.

Anyone interested can pick up a physical copy at any Kansas City Public Library location or download the booklet and individual pages from MVSC’s website, kchistory.org.
