Robert Dawson: The Public Library

Photographer and teacher ROBERT DAWSON traveled across the United States for 18 years photographing public libraries. What he found were unique, vibrant institutions that were crucial to their local communities. Some libraries were huge and imposing edifices built over a hundred years ago while other were single room make shift buildings. Too many have recently been closed. Dawson’s book THE PUBLIC LIBRARY: A PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAY collects some of his most interesting photographs and combines them with essays written by people like Bill Moyers and Anne Patchett. Tune in tonight and celebrate these wonderful centers for knowledge and community.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
