Never judge a book by its cover! The Poverty Roundtable Hastings Prince Edward, in partnership with the Belleville Public Library, is pleased to announce that there will be a Human Library event on Saturday, October 20 from 11 am – 3 pm. This event will allow you to “check out” a “human book” (an individual with an interesting background or story), to have a short one-on-one conversation with that person and learn more about their life experiences. This event is aimed at fostering diversity and inclusiveness by introducing members of the public to individuals that might have had a different life experience than themselves.
Registration will be required on the day of the event. If you’d like to find out more about this free event, please call the Information Services department at 613-968-6731 x 2037.
