Singer-songwriter Will Oldham (better known as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy of Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang) narrated a new documentary titled Our Library, which focuses on the Louisville Public Library system, according to Pitchfork. Our Library was produced by filmmaker Morgan Atkinson, who is based in Louisville, K.Y. Atkinson’s past works have included documentaries such as Soul Searching: The Journey of Thomas Merton and Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard, according to Atkinson’s official website.
Our Library, rather explores the “impact of free libraries on a community,” according to Pitchfork. Oldham not only contributed his narration to the documentary, but also added to Our Library’s soundtrack. On Oct. 18, Oldham will also be at Our Library’s free public screening, which will take place in Louisville, K.Y.. at the Ursuline Arts Center. Then, starting on Oct. 22 at 10:00 p.m. EST, Our Library will begin airing on Kentucky Educational Television (KET).
