Natomas Libraries Host Election Events for Kids

Every voice matters, especially the youngest ones.

To engage children in the process of voting, the Sacramento Public Library will be adding a small election to its regular toddler storytime. Each and every child will have the opportunity to cast their vote — for their favorite storybook character. This activity is intended for children ages 0-5 years old and will be held 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at the South Natomas Library, 2901 Truxel Road, in Sacramento.

Teens from the Library’s Teen Advisory Board on Tuesday will also pre-register fellow teens to vote in 2020, giving them a chance to experience a polling center on Election Day, in addition to being ready to vote in the next presidential election. This event is intended for youth ages 16-17 and is spearheaded by Lauren Kim and backed by the Teen Advisory Board, which chose pre-registering peers for the 2020 election to be their annual project.

On Election Day, Nov. 6 teens may pre-register 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the North Natomas Library, 4660 Via Ingoglia, in Sacramento and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the South Natomas Library, 2901 Truxel Road, in Sacramento.

The Sacramento Public Library serves 1.4 million urban, suburban and rural residents at its 28 library locations and online. More than just books, the Library offers services and programming focused on early learning, technology and creation, and reading. www.saclibrary.org
