Press Releases

Sacramento Public Library is once again hosting its annual Summer Reading Challenge from May 15 to August 15. Kick-off events take place on Saturday, May 14 at various library locations.

Sacramento Public Library will shake the taboo off of death during the second session of its new community discussion series called “Let’s Talk About.” The discussion will focus on why our society doesn’t openly talk about death. Facilitating the discussion will be author Caitlin Doughty and local law enforcement Chaplain Jenny Ebinger.

Sacramento Public Library is launching a new series designed to engage the community in a deeper discussion about noteworthy, often difficult-to-talk-about subjects. The series, called “Let’s Talk About,” starts with a discussion on racism utilizing the book Waking Up White by Debby Irving.
