We live in a “diverse and often fractious country,” writes Robert
Dawson, but there are some things that unite us—among them, our love
of libraries. “A locally governed and tax-supported system that
dispenses knowledge and information for everyone throughout the
country at no cost to its patrons is an astonishing thing,” the
photographer writes in the introduction to his book, The Public
Library: A Photographic Essay. “It is a shared commons of our
ambitions, our dreams, our memories, our culture, and ourselves.”
