Mark your calendar: Sacramento Archives Crawl on October 8
Special Collections is excited to be participating again this year in the Sacramento Archives Crawl. This year’s event will occur from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2016.
The California State Library, California State Archives, Center for Sacramento History and Sacramento Public Library will serve as hosts and open their doors in celebration of National Archives Month. This year’s theme is A Thirst for History.
As with past Sacramento Archives Crawls, participants will start at any of the four host locations and gather stamps in their passports as they view treasures from dozens of archives and special collections libraries, visit with archivists, and go on special behind-the-scenes tours. Those who visit at least three host locations during the 2016 Archives Crawl will receive a set of beautiful limited-edition coasters. The coasters, which you can preview below, are available while supplies last.
Special Collections staff will be hosting a table at the California State Library, 900 N Street, Sacramento. Stop by and say hello!
