The Library’s two 20th anniversary celebrations last weekend were so awesome–we hope you made it. We had a youth-friendly event with music and cake at the Library from 3-6PM where we had a collaging/modpodge tile-making activity, live screen printing by artist Xabi Soto, and stories from two of the Library’s original founders. We also had a 21+ celebration later that night at Sac Brew Bike bar with performances, snacks from Evan’s Kitchen and I <3 Teriyaki, more cake, and a beer/cider bar. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence stopped by and presented the Library with a check for $500 from a recent fundraiser (thank you so much, Capitol City Sisters!). Below are some pretty photos from the festivities. If you missed out on a shirt, tote, or print from screenprinting artist Xabi Soto, there is a limited supply at the Library. Shirts are $15-20 (sliding scale), totes are $10, and prints are free! And, as always, support the Library for a further 20 years by purchasing a membership or donating your funds/time.
The Lavender Library was founded 20 years ago this summer! Help us celebrate with two FREE celebrations, one family/youth friendly and one 21+.

This will take place in the evening at the Sacramento Brew Bike bar location on 19th between P and O. They’ll have a beer/cider bar (cash/card accepted) and we’ll have some snacks available, too.
