Real Life Library
Back by popular demand! Real Life Library is back by popular demand and ready for Volume 2! Real Life Library is based on the human libraries concept (humanlibrary.org). Some people are selected as “books” and trained to tell the story of their lived experience through a self-selected title. Community members, "readers," are invited to the event where they can "check out" and "read" the books they are interested in, one book and a few readers engaging in an intimate group story-telling/listening session in the Reading Room. The story of each of the books will be video recorded. Thus, each event creates a digital volume of books and a diverse digital library that is later accessible to a far wider audience.
