Free for All is a documentary project exploring the history, spirit and challenges of the free public library. With public libraries around the nation facing drastic budget cuts and even closures, Free for All investigates why so many Americans love their libraries and assesses the high stakes for democracy if public libraries become extinct. Don't miss this unique opportunity for a sneak peak at excerpts from the film before its formal release later this year.
