Human Library at the Ottawa Public Library
Real people. Real conversations / Histoires vécues. Histoires à partager.
Human “Books” have volunteered to take part in the event with the goal of building tolerance and respect for diversity in our community. A Reader ‘borrows’ a Book and engages in a one-on-one conversation to gain a better understanding of that person.
How to participate
- Readers register for one book at a time, in person, on the day of the event.
- Books get “checked out” for a 20-minute conversation by a Reader.
- Registration for the event is first come, first served.
- It is not necessary for Readers to have a Library card.
- This event is not a career fair.
- This program is designed for an adult audience. Children may check out certain books with the in-person consent of a parent.
