Human Library - Take out a prejudice

CBC Sunday News report on US Human Library launch

Last night viewers of the CBC Sunday News in Canada were introduced to the Human Library through a report about the launch in the United States last year. The CBC followed the events at Santa Monica Public Library and have put together a great presentation of the Human Library concept. The clip includes readers responding to their experience, books reflecting on their readers and organizers on the move. 

Great timing for Canada

The segment has aired at a perfect time for the many upcoming events in Canada. The local organizers from Calgary, Augustana, Guelph and Coquitlam can hope to be even more busy, when they start their March series of events. Below is a list of confirmed Living Libraries and more will follow shortly. Visit the activities section of this website for a better overview of events taking place around the world.
