“This year, internationally-renowned Documentary Photographer Robert Dawson has been collaborating with the Library and Literacy Foundation for San Joaquin County and the Stockton-San Joaquin Public Library to document the culture of public libraries and literacy in San Joaquin County.
“The artist and writer Ellen Manchester is also gathering stories of how people use the system’s libraries and literacy programs, promoting reading and literacy as a means for improving the community’s well-being. This effort has been made possible by a generous grant from the Creative Work Fund.”
Dawson has a portfolio called “Public Library: An American Commons.” It’s pretty cool. I guess we’re in it now.
