Library hosting "Human Library" event on September 15

On Saturday, September 15, Cozby Library and Community Commons will be holding a Human Library from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity for attendees to build positive relationships with neighbors and develop a better understanding of others. Several community members have volunteered to be "books" and you will able to check them out for a 30-minute conversation. ​

Some of the available books will be someone a Muslim, police officer, and parent of a disabled child. This is an opportunity to ask difficult questions and break down misconceptions and stereotypes. ​

The Human Library started in Denmark in 2000 as a way to encourage conversation and build positive relationships. Since then, many libraries and other organizations have held their own Human Libraries to support those same ideals. ​

Registration is open now. If you'd like to sign up for a spot, please email cozbyprograms@coppelltx.gov or call 972-304-3658.​
