2010 Staff Film Picks

In late 2010, Skokie Public Library staff were asked to select their favorite feature films, documentaries and television shows viewed during the year. Here are the results!

Click on the format designation to check the status of the film in the Skokie Public Library catalog. And, in case you missed them, it's not too late to see our Annual Staff Picks for books, films, and music from 2002 to the present!
