October 2020: Join us for our 10th annual (and 1st virtual) Sacramento Archives Crawl during the month of October!
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, and ephemeral items such as 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!
