Visit Hormel Center Archives


To use the archives, please visit the San Francisco History Center Reading Room on the 6th floor of the Main Library.

No appointment is needed, but some materials require advance notice for retrieval. Because of the unique and often fragile nature of these materials, archives are available for use exclusively in the San Francisco History Center reading room.

Please call the San Francisco History Center desk for more information at 415-557-4567.
