We’re going to be closed from Thursday June 6 – Sunday June 9 for Sacramento Pride weekend. We’ve got some big plans for Sac Pride, on Saturday June 8 and Sunday June 9, and it’ll take some prep in the days prior and we’ll all be at Sac Pride that weekend. So join us!
Join the Lavender Library for Drag Queen Storytime on Saturday March 24 at Noon, where we will be reading our favorite LGBTQ childrens’ books out loud for Queer Families from near and far! A local drag performer will be reading selections from our children’s section to the delight of all in attendance! And we’ll also have some activities for folks, like coloring and crafting.
• Event is all ages & FREE
• Light refreshments provided
• Some parking available on the side of the building & metered street parking available
This event series has been funded by a grant from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

LLACE has scheduled a few special events as part of our regular crafting event on the first and third Sundays of each month. The first of these special events is focused on “zine”-making, or the process of making small or short magazines that often focus in on a particular topic, and takes place on Sunday March 18 at 2PM. Gaining momentum in the 1990s, zines have been used for generations as a DIY forum of self expression and publication. From poems, essays, and political opinions, to collages and art pieces, zines are a way for groups to voice opinions outside the social norm.
We invite the community to join us and learn how to create them. We may also have a few completed zines on hand as examples.
All materials and instructions provided. Feel free to bring additional collage materials and art tools. Free event open to the public. Street parking free on Sundays. In addition, parking available in lot behind library.

Sacramento Pride is Saturday June 3, and we’ll be there! Find our table and come say hello. We’ll have books for sale (for suggested donation of $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardbacks), a craft activity, and we’ll be selling memberships.
Because we’re all at Pride, the Library will be closed on Saturday.
We’ll also be at ArtMix at the Crocker Art Museum on THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 6-9:30PM. For information visit: https://tickets.crockerart.org/Info.aspx?EventID=18.
