Recapping the 2013 Archives Crawl

Thank you once again to everyone who took part in the 2013 Sacramento Archives Crawl!  With the theme of A Passion to Preserve, this year's event offered practical advice and examples of well-preserved collections.  Many hundreds toured among the four host locations (California State Archives, California State Library, Center for Sacramento History and Sacramento Public Library), with a record number taking advantage of shuttle service aboard a 1958 vintage bus.  We also gave out a record number of commemorative coasters to those who gathered stamps in the their passports from at least three of the host sites.  Well done, everyone!

For those that could not attend any or all of the host locations -- and for those looking to relive the magic -- here are a few images from the Crawl:
