The Chester County library received over 1,500 films this week.
The Jessica Autumn Bannon Memorial Film Collection was donated by the Bannon family to honor the late South Carolina artist and model.
The first 150 titles are ready for release on Saturday, September 26 as part of the library’s Batman Day Event, which will also feature games, puzzles, free posters and 500+ free comics for library visitors.
The remaining films will be released at a rate of 25 each week throughout the coming year.
The Jessica Autumn Bannon Memorial Film Collection serves Chester County and all of South Carolina. The collection of 1500+ titles spans many film and television genres, representative of its namesake’s eclectic tastes. The collection also includes personalized notes imprinted on some of the film covers. Each title is labeled as part of the collection.
The purpose of the collection is to honor the late Jessica Bannon by providing fine, intelligent, quirky, shocking, silly, informative and endearingly different films and television programs. It includes the latest hits and blockbusters, documentaries, foreign films and selected works from nearly every genre. The bulk of the collection will be housed at the Chester County Public Library in Chester, South Carolina. Some will be placed in the Great Falls and Lewisville branches.
