Building, Shelter, Temple is a documentary based in the Milwaukee Public Library’s Central Branch. Frederick, a frequent patron of the library who is homeless, searches for a book about his grandfather, while a librarian talks about the various ways the public library can help patrons who seek assistance. Elmer, another homeless man, adds comments about his own experience being homeless and how he utilizes the library to better his situation. The library provides these three people a common space, a place to house knowledge, a place to stay when the weather is unfavorable, a place to give and receive the help of others.
