California State Library's Grand Reopening: Feb 11-14

Celebrate California State Library's Grand Reopening Week
Feb 11 - 14

The California State Library has returned to the newly restored Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building after four years of extensive renovations and we'd like you to come and visit us. The building, a remarkable example of Neo-classical architecture located at 914 Capitol Mall, has been fully restored to its original beauty.

Help us celebrate our move back to this historic building February 11–14, 2014. We have put together a series of special events, exhibits and presentations for this week of celebration. The festivities begin Tuesday, February 11, and continue throughout the week.

We have a series of events that you might want to check out in the Library Meeting Room on the fifth floor. There will also be exhibits in Gillis Hall, the main reading room on the third floor; the Circulation Room also on the third floor; and other locations throughout the library. You can also go on a tour.
Tours will begin Tuesday, February 11, at 11 a.m. and will continue until 3:30 p.m. Beginning Wednesday, February 12, tours will be conducted at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays only. You can schedule a tour online on our website.

The presentations in the Library Meeting Room, Room 500 will be held Wednesday-Friday, February 12-14, from 9:30 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. Among the topics presented will be a look at how the government has used comics to get their message out; a fascinating collection of political memorabilia including buttons, ballots and posters; the seemingly incongruous relationship between government documents and love; plus a host of other topics.
