Students enjoyed "reading" and learning from community members who became our "Books" during Wellington Secondary's own Human Library on November 17th. PHOTOS INSIDE!
The Human Library™ is an equalities project, created by the Danish youth organisation “Stop the Violence” in 2000 and it is now operational in more than 60 countries. It was developed to challenge societal prejudices wherever and for whatever reasons they occur, and to promote respect for difference and diversity in our communities. The Human Library is where real people are on loan to readers - a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered and where readers are encouraged to learn about ideas, cultures, lifestyles, and other life experiences through conversation.
