Are You a Human 'Book'?

July 14, 2011 | Soheli | Comments (0)

Last year, Toronto Public Library launched a new series called the Human Library - with a great response! The Human Library offers a chance to walk in someone else's shoes - someone right in your city with a unique story. Check out this article on BlogTO describing one experience at the Bloor/Gladstone branch.

This year, we're bringing it back and Cedarbrae is one of the lucky library branches hosting it. We're also the only Human Library branch in the east end of the city.
Are you a human 'book'?
Although the event itself is still a few months away (I'll blog more about it closer to November), it's time to start thinking about what kind of a 'book' you may turn out to be. Do you have a particularly interesting life story that you'd like to share? Maybe you've travelled extensively, or survived a natural disaster...or maybe you just immigrated from another country. Whatever the scenario, it may be something worth sharing. Get yourself caught up on what the Human Library is all about and apply to be someone's next great 'read'!

I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of mystery novels, adventure stories and more will end up at Cedarbrae later this fall...
