The Living Library

/ November 11, 2023

The event

The fourth annual “Living Library” will be held this year on Saturday, November 11th, from 10am to noon, at the Dover Library. This program allows people to connect with each other and learn from each other. At the Living Library real people are on loan to readers, as if they were “books”. This year’s “books”  include several retired teachers, a spelling champion, a retired librarian, an advocate for the local farmer’s market, a basketball coach, an animal rescue specialist, a career coach, an executive director of an art center, a theater enthusiast, and an adventurer. How does it work? The “books”, who are real people, will be seated around the library. If someone is available that you wish to speak with, you sit with that person and engage in a conversation for about 15 minutes. Then you can move on to the next person you wish to speak with.
