The California History Section holds a premier collection of documents from and about California's rich history. Our vaults house thousands of rare books, maps, newspapers, and periodicals in addition to a huge collection of one-of-a-kind photographs, letters, paintings, posters, pamphlets, and sheet music. Regardless of whether you're a serious researcher, a fourth grader or an average person visiting Sacramento, we'll have a resource for you!
