The Human Library is a living, breathing library where humans are the books and the stories are their lives. “Human Books” available to check out may include people who have experienced adversity due to race, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion/belief, culture, profession, and/or lifestyle.
Sunday, April 9
1 – 3 p.m.
Visitors will have the unique opportunity to converse with people who have volunteered to share their personal stories and answer questions about their lives, experiences and perspectives. Readers can peruse a catalog of “human books”, and will have the opportunity to “check them out” for face-to-face 15 minute conversations in a safe, respectful environment. The books are prepared to share their stories, and sample questions will be available to help jump start conversations.
- See the catalog of Books, and more details at www.goffstownlibrary/humanlibrary.
The Human Library was conceived in 2000 by a Danish youth organization called Stop the Violence in response to intolerance and violence within their community. The concept quickly gained a foothold and since then, Human Libraries have been held in over 70 countries around the world. Please visit www.humanlibrary.org or on Facebook for more information.
