Sac Pride


Sacramento Public Library was representing at Sac Pride yesterday – sharing our materials lists, handing out SPL branded treats, and just generally rocking our queer. (Please note the glitter duct tape artistry of yours truly.) And today is my third alt+fitness (fourth? who knows) since coming downtown to CEN so if you want to join me for Industrial Strength, c’mon down! Our June book is Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane, a quick and creepy read.

But the question at hand – what can we do to make you want to spend your summer with Sacramento Public Library? Aside from our sweet Summer Reading Challenge (win an iPad mini!) and our intrinsic awesomeness, of course.

Don’t laugh! That Nolan Ryan cookbook is legit.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

LanaThrilledI’m as thrilled as you are – we have a starting location for our walk this Wednesday! See you at The Weatherstone (828 21st St) so you can fortify before our (less than arduous) trek through midtown (though not quite an epic 1700 miles) to see where our readers go to be alone. Also, I’m junking up Bryce’s system of posting. But not too much. See you soon!
