Casper College Goodstein Library to Host “Living Library”

The Casper College Library will be hosting Wyoming’s first Living Library on Wednesday, February 22 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. as part of the 2017 Casper College Humanities Festival and Demorest Lecture.

Living Libraries, Human Libraries, or Living Book Libraries are all names for similar projects — libraries where instead of checking out a traditional book and reading its story, you borrow a person and have a conversation about their story.

The purpose of the Casper College Goodstein Foundation Library’s Living Library is to promote conversation, encourage understanding, and foster a culture of inclusion. Participants should expect to encounter perspectives they have never before considered, viewpoints different from their own, and life experiences that may challenge their own ways of thinking, all within a safe and positive atmosphere at the Casper College Library.
