You can’t tell a book by its cover

What’s it like to seek refuge in another country or to lead a charity, to edit a newspaper or to nurse on a mercy ship?

Talk with people from all walks of life at the Human Library.

You will be inspired as you listen to their stories.

Catalogue coming soon.

The Human Library is just like a normal library, except the books are human and the borrowers interact with their book. It aims to reduce stereotypes and prejudice and to promote respect for human rights and dignity.

A free presentation by Avondale Libraries and Friends of the Library.
