About The Public

Also starring Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone, Christian Slater, and Michael K. Williams, this drama tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, including homelessness and mental illness. In "The Public" an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati — and the Cincinnati Public Library. The story revolves around the library’s patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, and their interactions with the exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians who have built emotional connections with them. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. But what begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a standoff with police fueled by a storm of media coverage outside the library.

About the library

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie (see related titles in our catalog) in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The six-story curving, walkable wall embraces the public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium. A multi-level reading area along the glass lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. A roof-top garden, accessible by walking the crescent wall or the elevators, offers a 360 degree view of the Salt Lake Valley. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the library and the crescent wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
