SEPTEMBER 17 7:30 PM
The first of a monthly screening of films from The New York Public
Library's Donnell Media Center curated by artist and filmmaker Jeanne
Liotta.

The screening is a celebration of the public library, and The Donnell
Media Center's incredible circulating 16mm film collection at NYPL. Titles
screened reflect the changing attitudes towards the library mission of
free culture, access and use in several PSA films produced by libraries
themselves in a range of styles representing several decades of the 20th
century.

titles include:
Library Services on Staten island (1940)
The Impressionable Years (1953)
Seven Readers in Search of an Author (1966)
Houston Public Library Commercial (1973)
Syntax (1974)
A Boy and His Boa (1975)
