Hollywood Librarian

The USF Lakeland Library is proud to present The Hollywood Librarian: A look at librarians on film during Banned Books Week in October. This is the first movie on the subject of the real lives and actual work of U.S. librarians. Using the entertaining and appealing context of American movies, the film will hold some surprises for people who may think they know what librarians do. Instead of a commercial release, the film is distributed to libraries to bring attention to Banned Books Week and the issues of censorship, freedom to read and the work of libraries and librarians.

Two showings: Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:15Pm and Friday, October 5th at 1:15 PM. Location: LTB Auditorium (LTB 1100).

Tickets are on sale at the USF Cashier’s Office (LTB 1135).
The Office is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Ticket sales on October 2nd for paying audience will stop promptly at 6:00 PM.
