Living Library Project

  On August 22 Sumy Window on America center had an interesting event Living Library designed to create dialogue, promote understanding and reduce prejudice. A collection of “human books” (vegetarian from Poland, dentist from Donetsk, student who took part in Work and Travel Program) was offered on “loan” to visitors. Our visitors “borrowed” the human book for up to 30 minutes for an open conversation in English.  We invited our patrons to pull up a comfortable chair and a cold drink and enjoyed our collection of living books.
This project generates a great deal of interest in the library. A great tool to tempt new users into the center.
