The second annual Sacramento Archives Crawl on Saturday, Oct. 6 was a huge success with over 500 people attending the event. This year’s theme was “Building Sacramento/Building Communities,” so crawlers saw a wide range of materials documenting the growth of the Sacramento region.
Participants started at any of four host locations and gathered stamps in their passports as they viewed treasures from dozens of archives and special collections libraries, visited with archivists, and went on special behind the scenes tours. The four host archives included: California State Archives, California State Library, Center for Sacramento History, and Sacramento Public Library. Displays of pictures depicting the Sacramento City College library from the 1960s to the present day Learning Resource Center were displayed in the California State Archives. Photos of SCC buildings from 1920s to 1980s were also displayed along with 1940s year books, and pictures celebrating 90 years at SCC. The Sacramento Archives Crawl turned out to be a fun filled day reminiscing and talking with people about Sacramento City College. (Caroline Harker is the new SCC Archivist.
