The Public Library: a photographic tour
Local photographer Robert Dawson will discuss his 18-year-long photographic study of American public libraries, including a few of our own here in Oakland. His images, collected in his new book, “The Public Library: a Photographic Essay” reveal how communities around the country love and invest in our most democratic institution.
Copies of the book will be available for sale at this event.
