Free For All: Public Library Discussions Initiative

Implementation of a national discussion program centered around the film Free For All: Inside the Public Library.

The Free For All: Public Library Discussions Initiative, led by Video Veracity and Serendipity Films in partnership with the American Library Association, other library groups, and the Kitchen Sisters podcasters, will spark face-to-face public engagement around the humanities themes in the NEH-funded documentary Free For All, which explores the history, culture, and significance of the American public library and the free library movement that created it. Set to launch July 4th weekend, the program celebrates the upcoming 250th anniversary of our democracy and encourages civic education through scholar-led discussions and “Story Hours” in regional libraries across the nation, inviting the public to reflect on our national values of democracy, community, literacy, and plurality. Working closely with our partners, we will extend learning through in-person and digital experiences for discussion participants and through the creation of a robust multimedia Toolkit.
