Watch: A Book for Every Story

December 11, 2023 | By: Communications Staff

In collaboration with local filmmaker Sam Villagra-Stanton, the St. Joe County Public Library has produced A Book for Every Story, a video that shows the value of each individual book and person at the library.

What would happen if slowly, one-by-one, books were removed from the library’s shelves, and if the people who sought those materials vanished? The video shows the importance of an inclusive collection to our community.

The library is grateful to the community members and staff who generously gave of their time to participate in the production of this video. Born in Chile, Villagra- Stanton is a 2021 alumnus of John Adams High School who produced a state-winning screenplay as part of an IB film class during his senior year. His passion is video production.
