Human Library

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Meet your Neighbors at our Human Library!

Participants can 'read' our books, meaning you have a one-on-one conversation with the volunteer and share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience. The Human Library provides the opportunity for people to share and understand the experiences of others in our community. 

Advance registration is not required to participate, but will help us better accommodate all attendees at this event. Register online or call 815-534-6173.
