In a new PSA video for the American Library Association, actor, writer, and director Ethan Hawke explains why it’s so important to support our nation’s libraries.
“I’m here to talk to you about libraries, one of the most beautiful institutions that mankind has ever created,” he shares. “[Libraries are] a place where people from all backgrounds can join and be submerged in the ideas of the generations before us and the generations that are present right now.”
“If you can, please give to your local public library,” Hawke urges in the clip. “It is desperately needed.”
