The Yolo County Library will present three family programs in November that celebrate the rich ancestry and cultural traditions of Native Americans.

The Turner Community Library in West Sacramento will present the Maidu Center’s Outreach Team on Native California at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3. This interactive program is for the whole family to learn about California heritage and culture, and traditions of indigenous people. The library is at 1212 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento.

In Davis, the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St., will host an afternoon of storytelling and games from Native California at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8. The fun includes learning the art of beading pine-nut bracelets. All materials will be provided.

The Esparto Regional Branch Library will host a showcase of the Restore/Restory People’s History Project at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, telling the diverse stories of Yolo County’s peoples, traditions and relationships to the land, which will focus on Native Californians’ stories.

Restore/Restory is a project of the UC Davis Art of Regional Change and the Cache Creek Conservancy.  This event is open to the public and will take place in the Wintun Room at the library, 17065 Yolo Ave. in Esparto. Refreshments will be served.

Branch libraries throughout Yolo County will feature displays of Native American handicrafts and artifacts and provide extensive reading lists of Native American literature and history throughout November, which is designated as Native American Heritage Month. All programs are free.
