Marshall Public Library and Idaho State University’s College of Arts and Letters are joining forces to announce the largest Human Library yet.
Thursday, December 10, 2015 will see the living and breathing library move to the ballroom of the Pond Student Union Building at Idaho State University.
“The Human Library events have been getting more and more popular,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian. “This time you’ll have a chance to ‘check out’ more than 20 Human Books, the most we’ve ever had.”
At a Human Library, small groups of people gather around a Human Book and listen to a chapter from his or her life. The atmosphere is one of a casual conversation with a friend instead of a formal presentation.
“In a single night, you might listen to firsthand experiences of racing in the Iditarod, overcoming stage fright to win a beauty pageant, or surviving cancer,” said Campbell.
The Human Library starts at ISU’s ballroom at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m.; the doors close at 6. Refreshments will be provided and this program is free and open to all members of the public.
