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.

Free For All: Inside the Public Library, Documentary Film and New Media Project

Production of a 90-minute television documentary and digital engagement project on the history of the public library in the United States.

Free For All: Inside the Public Library is a multi-platform documentary project about the history, culture and significance of the American Public Library and the free library movement that created it. It is told through the voices of some of the millions of contemporary Americans who use their local library today and the voices of the many generations who have used it in the past. Free For All seeks to educate, entertain, and spark national dialogue at a critical moment for the future of public libraries in America. The project's centerpiece is a 90-minute film that interweaves dramatic chapters of national library history with a contemporary exploration of the American Public Library. The film and associated digital project explore why Americans are using their public libraries in record numbers and the threat to democracy if they were to become extinct.
