A Living Library event looks much like a conventional library - tables and chairs are set out for study, librarians staff the check out desk and borrowers can browse a catalog of books. The difference is that what's on loan are not books but people! The heart of The Living Library are Living Books - people that, for one reason or another, are subjected to stereotyping and prejudices. All are unpaid volunteers.
The concept is simple; interested participants check out a Living Book on a topic of interest and spend 30 minutes in discussion with the particular Book.
