Robert Dawson: The Public Library

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 2:30pm

Photographer and teacher ROBERT DAWSON traveled across the United States for 18 years photographing public libraries. What he found were unique, vibrant institutions that were crucial to their local communities. Some libraries were huge and imposing edifices built over a hundred years ago while other were single room make shift buildings. Too many have recently been closed. Dawson’s book THE PUBLIC LIBRARY: A PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAY collects some of his most interesting photographs and combines them with essays written by people like Bill Moyers and Anne Patchett. Tune in tonight and celebrate these wonderful centers for knowledge and community.
