branch supervisor Jessica Zaker won a Pride Award
from Sacramento Pride
, an LGBT advocacy organization, on June 24.
Zaker created and coordinated a series of “You Belong at Your Library
” events to coincide with National Library Week
in 2012. These events and the marketing campaign supporting them were designed to let members of the GLBTQIA (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Ally) community know that they are welcome at the Sacramento Public Library.
The Arcade Library is home to Rainbow Family Storytime
, a monthly event for LGBT families, and hosts an annual series of LGBT programs during Pride Month
. Zaker is also the co-coordinator of alt-library
, an online library community for young adults in the Sacramento area, and leads fitness
classes, such as Punk Rock Aerobics
