Bata Library Presents The Hollywood Librarian at Trent University on February 18


Community Invited to Explore Popular Images of Librarians in This Exclusive Peterborough Film Engagement

Friday, February 13, 2009, Peterborough

Members of the community are invited to join Bata Library staff for an exclusive Peterborough screening of the full-length documentary, The Hollywood Librarian: A Look at Librarians through Film on Wednesday, February 18 at 3:30 p.m. in the Bata Library Film Theatre.

The 96-minute film is the first full-length documentary to focus on the work and lives of librarians. Using the entertaining and appealing context of American movies, the film will hold some surprises for people who may think they know what librarians do. American film contains hundreds of examples of librarians and libraries on screen -- some positive, some negative, some laughable and some dead wrong.

Admission is by donation with proceeds gratefully accepted on behalf of Frontier College at Trent University. Light refreshments will be available.


For more information, please contact Robert Clarke, University Librarian, Trent University at (705) 748-1011, ext. 7957.
