Media Coverage

Thousands of readers and writers from all over California gathered this weekend at the Sacramento Convention Center for the city’s first California Capital Book Festival – a two day celebration of the state’s finest literature dedicated to both book lovers and authors alike…The main partner to the festival was the Sacramento Public Library Foundation, who partnered in an effort to encourage families to read with their children and increase children’s literacy across the state.

One way to estimate the literacy of a city is the presence of book festivals starring a lineup of authors. Another way is through one-book programs, in which the public is invited to read the same title and participate in related events. The Sacramento Public Library has sponsored a one-book program since 2005, and its annual literary gala and fundraiser, “Authors On the Move,” since 2003.

The staff of Sacramento’s Arcade Library never knows when lightning will strike at the Design Spot, a 3-D design and printing lab, but the charged atmosphere has led plenty of everyday people to become inventors.
