NEW! Human Library - Monday 17th at 9:45 - 10:45 (session 1) and 11:30 - 12:30 (session 2)
Human library works exactly as a normal library – readers come and borrow a “Book” for a limited period of time. After reading it they return the Book to the library. There is one difference: the Books in the library are human beings, and the Books and readers enter into a dialogue.
As in the real library, the Books are the most important resource of the Human library.
