Building Sacramento/Building Communities: 2012 Sacramento Archives Crawl

The 2012 Sacramento Archives Crawl is several months away, but we already have a few details to share:

The California State Library, California State Archives, Center for Sacramento History and Sacramento Public Library will again serve as hosts and open their doors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (that's an extra hour) on Saturday, October 6. This year's theme will be Building Sacramento/Building Communities, so crawlers can expect to see a wide range of materials documenting the growth of the region.

As with the 2011 Sacramento Archives Crawl, 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.

More information, including a list of participating repositories, will be posted here over the coming months.
