Human Books

human_library_logo_jpeg-1We’re getting ready for another exciting event at the Carleton Place Public Library! Yes, it’s that time of year again….the Human Library Project is almost upon us again. If you weren’t able to attend last year, we have some wonderful human books lined up for April.

What is the Human Library Project?

It’s part of a join initiative with all of the Lanark County libraries, where we offer up something unique to our patrons….the chance to speak with a fascinating person from our community, one-on-one! This isn’t a presentation series…..you come into the library and sit with one of our esteemed guests and chat with them about their work, lives or whatever they’re excited to talk about. These community members have graciously provided us their time, and all of them have a great story to tell.

When does it take place?

Set aside Saturday, April 18th for this great event. You can book your time starting April 6th to reserve your space.

Who can I talk with that day?

I encourage you to drop by the website to read a complete bio on each of our wonderful participants, but we have an Olympic volunteer, a former Deputy Minister, a Fire fighter, and a leader in the human rights movement.

Where can I find out more?

Drop by the Lanark County Human Library website to find out all of the details. You can see who will be a Human Book at each of the participating libraries, and starting April 6th, you can register to save your space online.

This is a fantastic chance to talk with someone you might never get the chance to have a conversation with normally. Don’t miss out! Spaces are limited.
