Oh, Sacramento? Are You Ready for YOUR closeup???

Central Library just completed its first cycle of digital stories for the current fiscal year. More than twenty-five star-studded expressions of truth and – as Cronkite would say – “the way it was” in the lives of several Sacramentans. Movie houses, the beauty of adoption, family, guide dogs, Sacramento’s Celtic/Pagan community, the heritage of our city’s trees, skim the veritable surface.

Most of the films lasted no more than 5 to 7 minutes and took on different forms: first person testimonial, third person narrative to name a few. See all the stories from the California of the Past project by going to:
