Event - Human Library

The concept of the Human Library was first launched in Denmark in 2000 as a way to encourage dialogue and build relations. Last year's event launched by the Ottawa Public Library has now evolved into a Canada-wide CBC initiative called National Human Library Day, with 22 public libraries and two cultural centres across 15 Canadian cities participating. This event is an effort to help dispel myths and stereotypes by creating an opportunity for one-on-one conversations between people who may never have met otherwise.

Social-biblio.ca is pleased to highlight this library "event" through this #humanlibrary and #CBCHumanlibrary feed so you can keep up with the conversation around the Canadian public libraries scene.
