Hamilton Public Library, the Upstate Institute, and Colgate University Libraries invite you to celebrate National Library Week with a special event: a free showing of the Frederick Wiseman documentary "Ex Libris," plus a catered dinner from 8 Fresh at intermission, and an interactive panel during dinner!

"Ex Libris" explores the New York Public Library system and modern libraries in general. Our panelists come from all walks of library life, and bring unique perspectives to the question of a library's place in today's communities. Jesi Buell (Instructional Design and Web Librarian, Colgate University), Mary Klucznik (Librarian, Chittenango High School), Marc Wildman (Executive Director, Central New York Library Resources Council), and Travis Olivera (Director, Hamilton Public Library) will discuss the benefits libraries bring to their communities, as well as the challenges they face from an ever-shifting socio-political climate.

And we hope to see you on the 10th!
