In conjunction with the United Way, Lanark area libraries will have fascinating people that you can “check out” at the library on Saturday, April 30th. Each Human Book will have a certain number of spaces where patrons can register and talk with them for a 30 minute period. Ask them about their fascinating lives, or just sit with them one-on-one and listen to them talk about one of their favourite moments or most prized memories.
At the Carleton Place Public Library, we’ll be having Frank Hitchens, local astronomer and presenter who will no doubt want to talk about the fascinating worlds beyond our own, and Major Alex Hughes, who has led a stellar military career and who now champions local history! Both of these gentlemen would be wonderful to talk with, so if you’re interested in the Human Library project, now is the time to sign up!
Drop by our official registration page to select our library and reserve your space. Each Human Book is only available for two sessions, so don’t miss out!
