City officials are dedicating and renaming a section of the North Natomas branch of the Sacramento (Calif.) Public Library in recognition of the librarian who was fatally shot in the library’s parking lot on December 11, 2018. City Councilwoman Angelique Ashby announced that the library’s teen space will be named in honor of Amber Fawn Wooton-Clark. The recognition was made official at the beginning of the May 14 city council meeting. Library Director Rivkah Sass additionally plans to set up a memorial fund in Clark’s name, intended to extend accessibility programming at the library, as well as commissioning an art piece in Clark’s honor.
