Human Library Returns during Kind Week 2016

Marshall Public Library

Human books will be back on display at the Marshall Public Library. On Tuesday, September 20, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the library will host the living, breathing Human Library. At a Human Library, attendees gather around a Human Book in small groups and hear a chapter from their life story. This edition is being hosted in conjunction with Kind Community’s Kind Week 2016 celebration. “When you hear another person’s story, you’re more likely to empathize with them,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Library. “What follows empathy is kindness. By checking out a Human Book, you get to hear about an experience you might never hear about otherwise or see something from a perspective very different from your own.” Human books scheduled to attend include the story of one woman’s experiences with her service dog, one person’s tale of returning to her job in Kuwait the same day Iraq invaded, and a mother embarking on a 2,000 mile road trip on a motorcycle with her eight-year-old child. This edition of the Human Library is as a partnership between Marshall Public Library, New Knowledge Adventures, Idaho State University's College of Arts and Letters, and Kind Community.
