Living Library is on Again

Mark your diaries. Sutherland Library is holding the first Living Library for this year on Tuesday 24 March from 10am-12pm (more details).

Living Library gives you the chance to meet and talk with people who have had very different life experiences to you own. From dealing with diabetes as an athlete to making a new land home, from living without sight to how religious conversion affects relationships. The aim is to break down barriers and make our community more accepting.

Living books can be borrowed for conversations of up to 30 minutes and they will truthfully answer any questions they may be asked to the best of their ability.

We have a number of Living Books ready and waiting to share their stories. however, if you are interested in becoming a living book you can get hold of an expression of interest form from any of our branch libraries or request one by email.
