Ex-Libris: The New York Public Library (12A)


Documentary about the changing role of the city's library service.

The critical consensus

The result is a film that makes you marvel anew at a beloved landmark that is committed to education and the nurturing of passion. It might even convince you that libraries are more important than ever to the creation of a cohesive, functioning modern society.
