Does Your Library Have Movie Star Looks?

Do you work in a public library that has the looks of a Hollywood Star? Emilio Estevez may want it to have a starring role in his new movie, The Public! Read about it below:

I am currently working on a feature film written and directed by Emilio Estevez entitled "The Public". It is a terrific script which features and is set entirely in the LA Public Central Library. The film is a drama involving homelessness in the City of Los Angeles and it's affect on the library and society. We will be filming a major portion of the project at the LA Public Central Library but are still in search of a location which could double as the reference desk and reading room of the library. Ideally, it is an older library that matches the classic architecture of the LA Public Central Library. It can be open, closed or not in use or partially in use. However there will be approximately 3 weeks of filming in the interior of the location and the location needs to be available for filming during regular business hours. If the location is empty or closed, there may also be an additional 3 weeks of temporary set construction and/or set dressing of the space in preparation of our filming work. Our filming begins early May and continues thru the end of June so the location would need to be available for the above mentioned term during this time period. We are hoping to find this location in the next 2 weeks.

We would prefer it to be within a 50 mile radius of Los Angeles but are considering all options at this point. If any of the libraries in your system may be interested or have a space available, they should contact me directly and send any pictures available of the location. Our main character is a librarian and this project will put the spotlight on library professionals everywhere and highlight the challenges they face in their daily work. Thank you for any help or direction you can give me in this search.
