If you don't think an actual visit is possible for you this week (or even if you do), there's a great way you can show your support for public libraries online. Introducing Free for All: Inside the Public Library, a documentary currently being made about America's amazing public libraries and "the urgent need to keep them open, innovating and free for all."
The two women behind the film, Dawn Logsdon and Lucie Faulknor, have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the $75,000 needed to complete the filming and editing process of the film before it's interred release on PBS in 2016. Check out the video below to learn more about the documentary.
All this week I'll be posting about the importance of local libraries and how people like you can help positively shape the institution's future. With many important political decisions being made about libraries on the horizon, now is the time to add your voice to the discussion.
