Multnomah County Library (Portland OR) is presenting and lending a variety of very interesting movies to patrons, sponsored by the Human Rights Video Project. The first of the films, "Books Not Bars" (about the growth of the prison industry), was shown last Saturday, and this Saturday the library will show "State of Denial" about the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
Created by National Video Resources and the American Library Association, the goal of the project is to distribute 13 award-winning films selected by filmmakers and human rights workers free of charge to 300 public libraries across the nation.
