human library poster VNNThe town of Chester will be the home of a “first” in Connecticut – the first Human Library Forum – on Sunday, March 6.

Born in Denmark and brought to the Chester Public Library in 2014 by Sue Zirlen, the Human Library provides a place where the “books” are living people who volunteer to share their stories, passion and/or life experiences with members of the community.

On March 6, the Human Library Forum invites attendees to experience the world of “human books” first-hand by providing an opportunity for one-on-one conversations with a “book” that piques their interest.

The forum is being held at Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek in Chester, in conjunction with the synagogue’s Books & Bagels monthly programs, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Following a brief introduction to the Human Library concept, attendees will have an opportunity for several 20-minute conversations with the “books.” The “book” titles are:

The Buzz in Chester – Backyard Beekeeping

Surviving and Thriving as an Adult College Student

The Ukelele

Patchwork and Quilting

Tap Your Trees!

Why Isn’t Our Economy Growing Faster?

Fantasy Sports

Nonviolent Communication

Eating Wheat and Gluten Free

Girl – Woman – Widow

The Human Library and Me

Sustainable Buddhist

Refugee – Filmmaker – Photographer

The Human Library Forum is free and open to all. Refreshments will be served during the morning. The forum will conclude around 11:30 a.m. Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek (CBSRZ) is at 55 East King’s Highway, off Rte. 154, in Chester.

For more information, call Chester Library at 860-526-0018 or CBSRZ at 860-526-8920 or visit Facebook.com/ChesterCTPublicLibrary.
