Discover Documentary Films: Quiet Please!  

Libraries play a vital role in society’s quest for and dissemination of knowledge. Many times, the library can be a person’s first exposure to books and reading. Today, libraries are re-examining their roles in the communities they serve and embracing technology to improve access to resources. The films in this course examine these and other aspects of libraries and librarians. It is expected that OLLI students will watch each film on their own time before the class discussion. Links will be provided prior to each class session to access websites where films can be watched online for free. The class will meet weekly on Zoom to discuss the film and enjoy special guest speakers: local librarians who will share their own personal and professional experiences with the class.
