alt+library is a place to meet other readers and find new ways to be a part of the library community. The Sacramento Public Library has changed--we're conducting book clubs in bars and coffee shops, organizing speed dating events, and hosting videogame tournaments, in addition to lending books, movies, music, and more. This is the place to find out about some of our newest events. Also, look at our website: www.altlibrary.com.
