Price: Free · Duration: 3 hrs
Location: Beaufort County Library System | 311 Scott St., Beaufort, SC 29902
Beginning National Library Week, the Beaufort Human Library will be held as a free public event on Sunday, April 3, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., hosted by the Beaufort County Library (311 Scott St.) in partnership with the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center, Beaufort High School’s Diversity Awareness Youth Literacy Organization, and community volunteers. The event’s “books” will be Beaufort community members from diverse backgrounds and experiences available to be “checked out” for conversations with “readers” to foster empathy and invite greater understanding of the many human stories to be found and shared in our communities.
We’ve all heard the old adage “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” The Beaufort Human Library is an opportunity to check out a person from our community instead of a book and hear a story that may change your ideas about unexplored stereotypes while encouraging empathy and understanding. Look for additional details to be posted in early March.
This program is sponsored in part by South Carolina Humanities, a not-for-profit organization inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage.
