Major Grant Received from NEH – A Reflection in Photos

We’re thrilled and honored to announce that Free for All: Inside the Public Library has been granted $500,000 by the National Endowment for the Humanities [update link to NEH release] to finish our film and prep for our library new media project. THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the project thus far, and we’re looking forward to putting this funding to great use!

With this brilliant news, we take a second to look back on the stories we've been able to collect while filming for Free for All. Here are some highlights in photo form from the past few years:
