There is a different type of Library amongst us; which is unlike any traditional Library we know. It is ever changing, ever evolving and the books are alive!
What we are referring to is The Human Library. A Library where Humans are the books; and these books tell their life story. Stories which are unconventional; perhaps eccentric; and unusual in the eyes and ears of the reader. Stories which have created stereotypes; and even prejudice due to society’s ignorance towards the subject matter of the books.
Through conversation and discussion, The Human Library aims to break the boundaries and stereotypes created around the story of each book and for the reader to gain a better insight into the narrative; and for them to re-evaluate their own perception of the story after “reading” the book.
The Human Library will be in Larnaca for a second consecutive year on Saturday 13th of May 2017; from 16:30 – 19:30 at the Larnaca Pier next to the Medieval Castle at the end of the Phinikoudes Avenue.
Organizers of this event are Europe Direct Information Center in Larnaca in collaboration with the alternative event planning team – Animi and Human Library Cyprus.
The list of “books” will be announced soon!
