March 1 - Headwaters "Human Library"

Come to the Library on March 1 to "Read" a "Human Book!"

On March 1, 2014, The Orangeville Public Library becomes a “Human Library” – in which people are the “books”.

The goal of the worldwide Human Library movement is to dispel stereotypes by promoting personal contact that broadens people’s understanding of one another. The books in the Human Library are people who have faced prejudice, stereotyping, and misunderstanding.

Readers, who can sign out a book for 30 minutes of respectful conversation, are encouraged to examine their own views and choose books that represent different ones.

Books can be signed out from 10 am to noon and from 1 to 2:30 pm at the Library’s Mill Street branch.
