Awesome Human Library - This event has already occurred
Get Your Rainbows Ready!
The Awesome Human Library is coming to Mill Street Library on Saturday, June 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. In partnership with Celebrate Your Awesome, we invite readers to drop-in check out a human book for an engaging one-on-one conversation about the person’s lived experiences.
Look through the catalogue to choose a book. Then register to be a reader by picking a 25 minute time slot. Questions and conversation starters will be provided to inspire engaging and educational conversations.
If you have not had the opportunity to experience the Awesome Human Library, this is your chance to participate in this exciting international program. A Human Library challenges preconceived notions humans have about other humans. Volunteers (Books) tell their stories to people (Readers) who sign up for short one-on-one conversations. By talking to one another in safe, respectful spaces, we can dismantle discrimination and create vibrant and inclusive communities where diversity is celebrated.
