Living Library Volunteers

by Christine Pinkney - 0 Comment(s)

The Living Library works exactly like your local Calgary Public Library - readers can borrow a "book". The difference is, books in the Living Library are human beings: "living books", with whom the reader can have a conversation.

This unique program enables readers to ask the questions they have always wanted to ask; while books are given the opportunity to share stories about their personal experiences in a safe and welcoming environment. This enables individuals to actively contribute to building inclusive communities of understanding.

We are currently looking for Living Book Volunteers for our March 2010 programs and beyond.

As a Living Book, all you need is yourself - no more, no less. By being available to answer questions about your life will help readers understand you and your experiences better.

To find out more about the program, or to become a Living Book, please contact us by e-mail livinglibrary@calgarypubliclibrary.com or by phone at 403.221.2094.
