is back for a second year. Stop by any of our locations, pick up a card and see where it takes you.
5. The garden
Square: Use a seed library
Borrow a packet of seeds from one of our four seed libraries located in the Colonial Heights, Galt and Rio Linda libraries in March, along with books on vegetable gardening. Plant in your garden, tend the plants, harvest the bounty, and then save some of the seeds for a return deposit in our seed libraries. It’s library to fork!
4. The river
Square: Explore the American River trail
Grab some books on birds, flora and fauna from our shelves, pack a picnic lunch and bring them along as you explore the 32-mile long Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail. Stretching from Sacramento to Folsom, this riparian landscape and recreation area gives residents the ability to get away from it while being very close to home.
3. The Book Den
Square: Shop a Friends of the Library book sale
Find great bargains the first Saturday of the month, when the Friends of the Sacramento Public Library host a warehouse sale at the Book Den. You’ll find great bargains and amazing treasures during regular open hours too. Best of all, all sale proceeds benefit the Sacramento Public Library!
Can’t make it to the Book Den? Shop the Friends of the Library sale shelves at your local library branch.

Square: Research your family history
| Visit the Sacramento Room
