Living Books Program

FBI BadgeThe Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury hosted a Living Books Program.  Rather than having an author visit and talk about their book, they arranged for patrons to “check out” a person for a one-on-one conversation. Here’s the library description:

We make books come alive by inviting their authors to visit and talk with us. Now we’re going a step further.

On Saturday the 12th, we will feature living books.  You check them out for up to 30 minutes, talk with them, and then return them.  Have a coffee, sit down, it’s all about learning something new.

Each “book” is a person – local residents of different backgrounds (such as a retired FBI agent, a pro wrestler, and an animal rights activist) who have volunteered to be “checked-out” by readers for one-on-one conversations.  Everyone stays in the library.
