The Human Library: Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover.

The Human Library is a library of people. Events are hosted where readers can borrow human beings serving as open books, and have conversations they would not normally have access to.
Many of the human books in our bookshelf represent a group in our society that is often subjected to prejudice, stigmatism or discrimination because of their lifestyle, diagnosis, belief, disability, social status, ethnic origin and much more. All of our books have really interesting stories to tell.
You will be able to "book" in a 20-minute session with a human library title from the week of 21 October. 

For more information or to book, call Alexandra Library 03 448 9412 or email  or check out the display and "catalogue" for your human library "books" at the Alexandra Library. For regular updates and to visit The Human Library Facebook event click HERE
