Director: Frederick Wiseman
An epic documentary study of the New York Public Library. With 92 locations throughout Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island, the library is committed to being a resource for all the inhabitants of this multifaceted and cosmopolitan city, and beyond. This film by Frederick Wiseman shows how the public library is still a laboratory of democracy. It is a subject close to our heart at Storyhouse!
There will be 15-20 minutes of trailers and adverts before the screening (not included in duration).
This event is screening as part of National Libraries Week (8-13 October).
This year, libraries across the country will showcase how they bring communities together, combat loneliness, provide a space for reading and creativity and support people with their mental health. Storyhouse was recently voted one of the best libraries in the country by The Bookseller.
