Greetings VRT Membership,
I'm reaching out on behalf of Dawn Logsdon and Lucie Faulknor, the filmmakers
behind Free for All: Inside the Public Library. They are putting feelers out
for moving images that show American public libraries in action from the
1920s-1970s, and really want to have submissions from all over the country.
Please share this blog post with your networks via listservs and/or social
media. I've included a sample Facebook post below.
Contact arch...@serendipityfilms.org for questions and or additional details.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Sample Facebook and Twitter Post:Serendipity Films is on the hunt for archival
films that show libraries in action from the 1920s-1970s. If you know of
anything, please share here:
About Free for AllFREE FOR ALL: Inside the Public Library is a multi-platform
media project about the American public library and what it means to our
country. It is told through the voices of some of the millions of Americans who
use their local libraries every day, along with those of generations past who
forged the library’s starring role in the public commons. The film takes
viewers on a road trip across the country, stitching together contemporary
stories with outstanding and rarely seen archival material. To supplement the
film, a series of web-based short films will delve further into stories from
people all over the country that illuminate life inside libraries.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control,
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and
