Borrow a human

City Centre Library lending people for one-on-one conversations.

Human “books” will be available for free, 20-30 minute, one-to-one conversations on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the City Centre Library, 10350 University Dr.

Readers and books can enjoy the oral tradition of storytelling – face-to-face exchange is a powerful way to share experiences, knowledge, and expertise.

The goal of the Human Library program is to promote respect for diversity, to highlight some of the vibrant, interesting, and proactive people in the communities and to connect with others.

Some of the many topics the human books will talk about are:

• Choosing a child-free life

• Cross-word puzzles

• Glassblowing

• Lesbian parenting

• Living with disabilities

• Parenting an autistic child

• Refugee experience

• Tarantulas and scorpions
