A bus load of sleepy but happy family researchers made their way to Sutro Librarya, a branch of the California State Library, in San Francisco last Wednesday. I am sure everyone was up at "0 dark hundred" and getting on the bus anytime from 6:30 to 7:30am - with not much traffic we arrive 9:45am 15 munutes before the doors were to open. But our trusty leader Melinda Howard, called ahead and we were in and getting settled down by 10am. Orientation, and then we were all off in many different directions ALL DAY LONG. Some broke for lunch but many didn't. Copier was busy most of the day. Lots of chit chatting - where is this? where is that? Oh my goodness look what I found!! etc etc. It was a good day.
While we were there the librarians told us that their last day open would be today January 31, I mention this because the flyer that I am looking at says a little different. So I would call first to make sure they are open if you are thinking of going down in February or March.
Their flyer and online announcements state ...............
