Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Library Film & Culture Programs presents : Frederick Wiseman’s film makes a case for the library as an urgent idea.
Master documentarian Frederick Wiseman, known for his spellbinding films about complex institutions such as the police, high school, and the Paris Opera Ballet, turns his attention to New York Public Library for his latest film, Ex Libris. In this fascinating long-form documentary, Wiseman exposes the myriad offerings and resources provided by NYPL, from our online archive of images to our author talks to our educational programs and more.
This is a compelling look at a library beyond the books. SUNDAY, JULY 15 at 1pm. With refreshments. All are welcome!

  1. There’s a segment on how much better it is to remove the books, move the main staircase, install a skylight, and build a performing arts center with no parking that would represent an incursion on public land and create an additional impervious surface in a flood zone. JUST KIDDING.
