"Going Places: A Journey Through Archives" - Sacramento's 8th Annual Archives Crawl October 6, 2018, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Join us for the 8th Annual Archives Crawl on Saturday, October 6, from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The Sacramento Archives Crawl is an Archives Month event held every October. Crawlers tour between four host archives in Sacramento, gathering stamps in their passports as they view material from dozens of archives and special collection libraries, visit with archivists, and go on special behind-the-scenes tours.

You may join the Crawl at any of the four locations:

  • California State Archives (1020 O Street)

  • California State Library (900 N Street)

  • Center for Sacramento History (551 Sequoia Pacific Blvd)

  • Sacramento Public Library (Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, Central Library, 828 I Street)

Every participant in this year's Sacramento Archives Crawl will receive a passport containing a map of host locations, directory of participating archives, list of sponsors and more.  Collect stamps from at least three of the four host locations and you will receive a set of limited edition commemorative coasters while supplies last.  

Go to California State Archives at for more information.
