Human Library

Tue 21 May at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


A Human Library is a library where real people are ‘on loan’ in a safe, conversational space where topics are discussed openly between a ‘human book’ and a reader (community member).
Each human book has a distinctive story that details their lived experience of belonging, diversity and inclusion.

Come find out first-hand some of the unique life stories of people living in your Bathurst community.
With multiple Human Books signed up for this event, you can reserve up to two timeslots, or drop-in to see who is available for a 25minute session to listen to their story.
You never know what amazing things you might find out about an ‘every-day’ person’s life.

For bookings, phone 6333 6281.
