Human Library Project

Have ever wished you could have a conversation with someone different?  Perhaps someone who lives in a different place or has a different job or just someone who views the world differently.  The Toronto Public Library is making that possible through the Human Library Project.  People from different walks of life volunteer as “human books.”  One can visit the library and check out a person for 30 minutes.  Then just sit and talk.  The hope behind this idea is to break down barriers and prejudices.  I find this idea both intriguing and lovely.  I do wish I lived in Toronto so I could check out a person, talk, and learn.  What do you think about the Human Library Project?  Would you participate?  Who would you want to check out and chat with?  If I’ve piqued your interest click here and learn more.
