To get started on this year's Archives Crawl, begin at ANY of the four host locations: the California State Archives (1020 'O' Street), California State Library (900 'N' Street), Center for Sacramento History (551 Sequoia Pacific Blvd.), or the Sacramento Room at the Central Library (828 'I' Street). You will be given a passport at the first location you visit, which will provide a map to the others. Each host location will stamp your passport when you arrive. Free parking is available at the California State Archives and the Center for Sacramento History.

Here's some additional incentive to visit the State Archives for Archives Crawl on October 1: participants who present Archives Crawl passports stamped by the State Archives will receive free admission to the California State Museum, which is conveniently located in the same building at 1020 'O' Street.

You can now go online to preview the 2011 Sacramento Archives Crawl passport (pdf, 6 MB). On October 1st, passports will be issued to participants at the first host location they visit. The passport contains a map, contact information for host locations, information about archives and the crawl, and a directory of participating archives. Each host location will stamp visitors' passports, and those with stamps from at least three out of the four locations will receive a set of limited-edition commemorative coasters with images from Sacramento's former Buffalo Brewing Company (see post below).
