Library Closed Monday, May 31st - Memorial Day

The Excelsior Branch and all other SFPL branches will be closed on Monday, May 31st for Memorial Day. Memorial Day, formerly called Decoration Day, honors those who have died in the nation's wars. It originated during the American Civil War (1861–64) when citizens placed flowers on the graves of those who had been killed in battle. The day has also come to signal the beginning of summer.
