Documentary and Discussion Series

July 24, 2014

The Oceanside Public Library is proud to host a series of PBS Point of View (POV) Documentaries as part of a new series, Citizen of the World. This series will run August through November on the third Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m., and will feature notable documentaries with Civic Reflection discussions to follow. These films will be screened at the Oceanside Public Library Civic Center Community Rooms at 330 N Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054.

At Oceanside Public Library we celebrate a diverse community and work to awaken a sense of cultural belonging. We also strive to promote civic participation and reflection by encouraging dialogue and promoting informed decisions about current issues. POV features independent non-fiction films that highlight social issues. Through working with PBS POV for the Citizen of the World documentary series, Oceanside Public Library is able to expand on those goals.


This free series is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library and is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov). The documentary and discussion will be educational and engaging for all ages.
