A look at the November CLA reception at the California State Library

The California State Library on Sacramento’s Capitol Mall was lit up Sunday, November 12 when over 400 guests from the California Library Association’s annual conference joined State Librarian Susan Hildreth and many other members of the California State Library community for a 2 hour evening gala hosted by the California State Library Foundation and Infopeople.

The conference reception in the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building took place in the Memorial Entrance Vestibule, the State Librarian’s office, Gillis Hall and the “old” Circulation and Catalog Room.  Reception guests were particularly taken with the grandeur of the State Librarian’s office and the immense Maynard Dixon murals covering many of the public walls.  Rivkah Sass of the Omaha Public Library called the building “incredible,” and said the “physical space of the State Librarian’s office befits the position.”
