Human Library

 

Would you borrow a book person instead of a book?

That’s what ‘readers’ did at Auckland’s first Human Library last weekend, at the Festival For the Future Sept 2016.

Presented by Splice and the Central Library at the Festival for the Future, the Human Library was a huge success with both readers and ‘books’ extremely enthusiastic about their interactions.

“This should be a nation-wide event,’ was just one of the many positive comments.

Providing a secure environment for conversations to take place between people who may not normally have an opportunity to connect, the Human Library is designed to challenge societal stereotyping and prejudice and help people better understand those with whom they share their communities.

Human Library will be presented again at Auckland Library on Friday 27th October from 4-8pm and the next day from 11-2pm.
