ISE Human Library
Friday February 13th, 13:40-15:30

We are continuing with a successful Human Library. This year the Human Library will hold music themed books. The books are related to music; genres, styles, instruments, singing, folk songs... anything that inspires the book or what the book is passionate about and finds important sharing with the reader.

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 personal dialogue.
Human Library for the young students is a verbal heritage tool, a way:
  • to share our stories, culture, hobbies, interests, skills in a real face to face situation,
  • to learn from each other and about each other.

As in the real library, the Books are the most important resource of the Human library. The role of the book could be demanding, but it is also interesting and fun.

I would like to say a Great Big THANK YOU to all of the Books for volunteering as Books.
