The Human Library – Challenging Stereotypes and Prejudices
Sometimes the root of understanding one another’s stories is getting answers to the difficult questions and during The Human Library™ those questions are expected, appreciated and answered. This event is meant to challenge the labels we put on others in a unique reading experience; where real people are on loan as “books.” “Readers” are given a positive framework for a 20-30 minute conversation to connect, inquire and challenge the stereotypes and prejudices that separate us.
This year’s Human Library is brought to Storyfort by Ada Community Libraries and The Meridian Library District. Books will be on loan at the Owyhee on Friday, March 22nd, 3-7 pm and Saturday, March 23rd, 1-5 pm.
