Film4Thought: A Celebration of Librarians in Film

Hunter Library is pleased to present A Celebration of Librarians in Film in honor of Banned Books Week September 29 - October 6, 2007. First observed in 1982, Banned Books Week reminds Americans not to take the democratic freedom to read for granted. It is sponsored by the American Library Association.

A Celebration of Librarians in Film will offer free screenings of some favorite films that feature librarians and is dedicated to the many librarians throughout history who have valiantly defended the freedom to read. All screenings will take place in the University Center Theater on the Western Carolina University Cullowhee campus.

The University Center is providing free popcorn for the event. Hunter Library will host a reception Sunday, September 30, 2007, following the screening of the librarian cult classic: Desk Set (1957), starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
