​Human Library

​Saturday, September 15 from 10 am - 1 pm

​​Do you want to get to know the people in your community better? We have gathered human “books” to be checked out by “readers” for 30 minute conversations. Readers will have the opportunity to talk to people in our community who are willing to share some of their life experiences that have been influenced by their occupation, their ethnicity, their religion/ideology, their social status, or by a disability. Register to checkout a "book" by emailing cozbyprograms@coppelltx.gov or calling 972-304-3658.​
