A Human Library for Children
It has been a long journey full of tremendous learnings. We are still learning and finding new ways to create a safe space for difficult conversations. For open exchanges of courage and curiosity. Few are more open than children and if permitted by their parents, they will ask the most amazing and fruitful questions. Tonight we will know some of them and the answers given by the books from our bookshelf at the first Human Library for children and their parents.
The event will take place on October 12th, 2018 at from 6 to 8 pm at Copenhagen Central Library.
A special selection of content
The bookshelf for this event has been edited especially to fit current topics and issues that could be of interest to children. This includes a Refugee from Syria, a person with disability, a topic about eating disorders, a police officer, a victim of bullying, a formerly homeless woman and a person who is body modified. Normally people under the age of 15 have to be in the company of an adult to attend a Human Library and to borrow a book.
Conversations at the event will be up to 30 minutes with no option to extend. We are looking forward to welcoming our youngest readers ever for conversations about important issues.
The Human Library for children has been prepared in partnership with the Childrens Library of the Copenhagen Central Library as part of Copenhagen Culture Night 2018.
