1st ANNUAL SACRAMENTO ARCHIVES CRAWL

Saturday October 1, 2011
11:00 am  to  4:00 pm

Start off at any of the host locations - the California State Archives (1020 O Street), California State Library (900 N Street), Center for Sacramento History(551 Sequoia Pacific Blvd.), or Sacramento Public Library (828 I Street), and "crawl" to the others using the map provided in your Archives Crawl passport. At each location, you can view archival collections on display and take behind-the-scenes tours. Representatives from other archives and special collections libraries will be on hand to discuss their archival collections - historic photographs, rare books, historic artifacts - and answer your questions about how to connect with local history resources. Those who have their passports stamped by at least three of the host locations will receive a set of limited-edition collectible coasters with images from Sacramento's former Buffalo Brewing Company.  Visit the official website HERE
