California Archives Month is part of American Archives Month. The purpose is to educate the public about the importance of historical records and the effort to preserve them for future generations. Professionals and repositories in California and around the country will be showcasing their collections and the value in maintaining them.
The theme for this year's Sacramento Archives Crawl is "Having Fun in the Sacramento Region." The host institutions will be the same as last year: California State Archives, California State Library, Center for California History, and Sacramento Public Library (Sacramento Room in the central branch). The Crawl will be on Saturday, October 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Last year I already had something scheduled when I learned about the Archives Crawl, but this year I saved the date! I'm looking forward to going around Sacramento and learning what kinds of interesting resources are available in the participating archives. Want to come out and "crawl" with me?
