The Hollywood Librarian to be Screened Locally

For anyone who couldn't make it to the world premier of the documentary The Hollywood Librarian at ALA in June, you'll have a second chance to see the film. Two screenings of the film will take place locally during Banned Books Week (September 29 - October 6.) The 96-minute documentary is the first look at the real work and skills of the more than 60,000 librarians working in the U.S. The film provides a glimpse into this well-loved but little understood profession and will leave audiences with a new appreciation for a group of people who have been called “democracy’s heroes.”

Local screenings will be held as follows:

Wednesday, October 3 at 7:00 PM

Thursday, October 4 at 3:30 PM

Tickets will be required and admission will be charged for the general public (but librarians will be admitted free!) Please contact the host site for ticket information after September 15.
