The Hollywood Librarian, the first movie about the real lives and the actual work of America’s librarians, is premiering during Banned Books Week in libraries across the country. A unique and charming blend of film clips, humor and critical analysis of the popular image of librarians, The Hollywood Librarian encourages a new-found empathy for the profession by revealing the diversity of individual librarians and the importance of what they do.
The Rebecca Crown Library will be showing two screenings:
- Monday, Oct. 1 @ 6pm in Springer Suite
- Thursday, Oct. 4 @ 7pm in Bluhm Lecture Hall (in Parmer)
Tickets may be purchased at the Crown Library Reference Desk.
- $8 – Adults (ages 12-60)
- $5 – Children and Seniors
- FREE – Children under 6, librarians, library staff, and Library School students (but you’ll still need a ticket for entry)
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Crown Library.
