Extract Xlsx Workbook File Metadata/properties In Python 3.6

How can I read the properties/metadata like Title, Author, Subject, Last modified and Keywords stored in a xlsx file using Python? I've used xlrd library however, there are no such properties to extract theses entities. Any Help is appreciated

You may be interested in openpyxl:

Something to get you started may look like:

from openpyxl import load_workbook
wb = load_workbook('yourfile.xlsx')
wb.properties

Here's the sample output:

<openpyxl.packaging.core.DocumentProperties object>
Parameters:
creator=u'User', title=None, description=None, subject=None, identifier=None,
language=None, created=datetime.datetime(2018, 12, 11, 9, 55, 2),
modified=datetime.datetime(2018, 12, 11, 10, 30, 38), lastModifiedBy=u'User',
category=None, contentStatus=None, version=None, revision=None, keywords=None,
lastPrinted=None

Is this something you can work with?
