One Book One Community – “Rags to Riches” Documentary Screening
February 12 @ 10:30 am
Watch a documentary following the life of Andrew Carnegie, the philanthropist whose idea for publicly funded libraries created the idea of “palaces for the people.” A discussion will follow the showing.
Williamsburg Regional Library and William & Mary are once again partnering to bring you One Book One Community, an initiative that encourages our community to come together and have a shared reading experience. The places where we meet – schools, libraries, playgrounds – create social bonds that strengthen communities. How can we create and support spaces that help us create a better society? Author Eric Klinenberg presents Palaces for the People, the 2022 One Book One Community selection.
This program was made possible by the generous support of the Friends of Williamsburg Regional Library Foundation.
