03 Aug COHO, library plan Human Library
COHO and the Faulkner County Library are partnering to bring the Human Library to the library from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25.
The Human Library is a concept created in 2000 by the Danish youth organization Stop the Violence, and is now operational on five continents. It is a library of individuals, each representing a group in the community that are somehow exposed to stigma, prejudice and/or discrimination.
The Human Library aims to establish a safe conversation space, where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and hopefully answered by the Human Book on loan.
An organizational meeting for “Books” will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, at the library. Please contact Nancy at the library at 501.327.7482 or [email protected]. All library events are free and open to the public.
