About the film: I would walk to my neighborhood library in New Orleans every day after school to devour books while waiting for my parents to finish work. As I got older, I used my public library less. I mainly thought of it as a place to find books I couldn’t afford to buy. Fast-forward several decades: Hurricane Katrina hit. While national, state and city relief efforts floundered, librarians from around the country mobilized, arriving before the Army or National Guard to save rare documents and provide services to evacuees in nearby towns. My vision of the public library was forever transformed.
