Prom is one of the most important night in a teenager's night, but it is also one of the most expensive.
Whether you are paying for a dress or a tux, dinner or a limo, the night's costs add up.
The Sacramento Public Libraries want to help those who want a magical night, but can't afford the not-so-fairytale price tag.
The library hopes to help hundreds of students between 13 to 19 years old by providing community donated prom attire and accessories free of charge at 13 library locations starting Thursday.
The all-inclusive program allows teens to "shop" the gently-used dresses, suits, shoes and accessories of all sizes and types. Teens will need to show their student ID to pick from the hundreds of options.
Teens will be able shop at the following library events:
