Mount Prospect Library Commemorates Banned Books Week With Short Film

For Banned Books Week, Mount Prospect Library's Head of Community Services Jennifer Amling directed and edited a short film where the MPPL community brings the first line of "Fahrenheit 451" to life.

This reading of Ray Bradbury's often-challenged book features Mount Prospect Library staff, patrons, trustees, and Mount Prospect Mayor Arlene Juracek and Fire Chief Brian Lambel.
