Media programs in libraries can help promote lifelong learning with film and video resources. Libraries are central to empowering their patrons to use media in meaningful ways. Film and media education must grow and evolve in order to become a more important part of the future of librarianship. We see libraries as venues for the process of civic agency and social change, which can be supported by the practice of critical analysis and creation of media in the library space. Libraries that cultivate community film viewing and media making embody the practice of community building, and community spaces for gatherings and discussions are increasingly recognized as key features for libraries. Resources and programs that support patrons as media makers, not just as media consumers, are a vital part of the future of libraries. Film and media education activities provide many opportunities for partnering with the community.
