Library Documentaries by Teens

Participants of the SLIFF Kids Documentary Film Camp, opens a new window toured Central Library with curiosity. They had no difficulties brainstorming a long list of possible topics for their projects, but a couple stood out. The Library's Visitor's Experience Specialist, Scott Wolfe, had mentioned something that caught the teens' attention: St. Louis Library was unique in its early days in being a library that welcomed Children. The campers broke into two teams, and one group delved into the history of children in libraries, while the other looked at the architectural significance of Central Library. Both teams worked hard all week researching, filming, conducting interviews, and editing, and the documentaries they produced offer great insight into these topics. Enjoy!
