Event Details

Human Library

Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

A human library functions similarly to a regular library, however, the Books are real, human beings, who teach others about themselves and their experiences through interpersonal dialogue.  Experiencing a discussion with a human Book creates an opportunity for constructive dialogue and learning between two people who may normally not interact. Participants who wish to have a two way, interpersonal conversation with a Human Book can schedule a 30-45 minute session with a specific Book or register at the library on the day of the event. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, and is available on-line.  “Librarians” (representatives from the coordinating committee) will be on site to assure scheduling goes smoothly and volunteer Books are returned in good condition.

This is a free event. Light refreshments will be offered.
