October 22 in San Antonio history...

1960

1973
The San Antonio Library initiates a new “after hours” reference service. Persons who need answers to questions may call the Main Library any time of the day or night, 365 days a year. When the library is closed, an answering service will take the question and refer it to the library reference department as soon as the library opens. A librarian will find the answer and return the call.  (This service no longer exists.)

1980
