EX LIBRIS: THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY is a documentary about the changing role of the city's library service.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'shit' and 'crap'.

Sex

There is a reference to "girls just looking for dick" in a spoken word performance. A speaker discusses the phallic properties of salami and the sexual connotations of both apples and pastrami sandwiches. During a parade, a reveller wears a novelty penis costume.

There is a very brief glimpse of a still archive image showing cocaine cut into lines.
