On October 26 from 11 AM - 4 PM the Osterville Village Library will be hosting an event called the Human Library.
At the event, attendees will be able to check out living 'books' for 30-minute conversations to listen to their unique story and particular perspective on life, ask questions, and engage in conversation. A rabbi, a Muslim, a person with body modifications, and a developmentally delayed person are just a few of the 'books' who will be available to be 'checked out.'
Difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. This event aims to ignite dialogue and understanding between people by creating a safe space to have conversations about prejudice and discrimination. We want to break down barriers based on stereotypes.
The Human Library provides the opportunity for our community to share and understand the experiences of others—we hope you'll join us!
