'Awesome Human Library' returns to Mill Street Library for Pride and Diversity Day in Dufferin County


Stories come alive on Saturday, June 18 from 1-4 p.m. at the Awesome Human Library, in partnership with Celebrate Your Awesome. 

A Human Library challenges preconceived notions humans have about other humans. Volunteers (books) tell their stories to people (readers). The public is encouraged to drop in, select an Awesome Human Book, and sign up for a 25-minute session. Questions and conversation starters are available to inspire engaging and educational conversations.

“On behalf of the organizing committee for Celebrate Your Awesome, we are so pleased to be working in partnership with the Orangeville Public Library again to bring an important educational component to our celebration of Pride,” said Councillor Lisa Post. “The Awesome Human Library gives people an opportunity to learn from someone else's experiences and to see the world with different eyes. It also creates a safe space for people who are questioning to learn and ask someone who has similar lived experiences.” 

Mill Street is closed on Saturday, June 18 for Celebrate Your Awesome. The Mill Street Library is open on Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
