Giants Pride Week – Excelsior Branch
Even though we are not able to light our building orange like City Hall or Coit Tower, Excelsior Branch Library is showing our Giants Pride with displays of Giants memorabilia from the collections of Branch staffers.
Here at the Excelsior Branch we have many Giants fans (long-suffering and bandwagon-ers alike) on the staff and out in the stacks and chairs. Patrons keep the staff up to date with the scores from GameCast or the latest from KNBR when they hustle in to return a book. But, when the Giants win, we know within seconds: the nearby watering holes erupt with cheers, followed soon after by the parade of cars down Mission Street.
So, when you’re not glued to your TV or radio, stop by Excelsior Branch to see our display of memorabilia from the personal collections of staff members. You can pick out books about the Giants or look for old newspaper articles. You can also see a fine collection of Giants and Seals images from the Library’s Historical Photograph Collection.
If something historic happens, be sure to check out the Newseum’s collection of front pages.
Go Giants! ¡Viva Gigantes!
