Stories truly DO come to life at The Poudre River Public Library District! The Library will be hosting its first ever Living Library Book Fair on Saturday, February 2nd at Old Town Library. Two dozen human “Books” are available for the community to “check out” during. The event is free to the public and sign up is required to participate as a “Reader” and “borrow” Books.

For 45 minutes at a time, a small group of Readers interact with the Human Books who will speak of their own experiences and are prepared for honest and respectful dialogue.

The Poudre River Public Library District’s shared resources serve more than 191,740 people across a vast 1,800 square-mile region in northern Larimer County, Colorado. David Slivken, the Library’s executive director says that the, “Living Library Project gives people an opportunity to tell their own stories and creates greater understanding and connection in the community”.

There are so many Human Books available but some include:

  • The Awesome Dude
  • Love Pusher
  • Master Beekeeper
  • Mosquito Lady
  • Open Book: Trauma and Homelessness
  • Precious Scars: How One Woman Found Her Truth and the Strength to Shine in the Darkness
  • Tableau Flow: A Multi Tonal Exploration of Life
