Human Library

This year a new event was introduced during annual Book Week - ISE Human Library. 

Human Library works exactly as a normal library – readers come and borrow a “Book” for a limited period of time. After reading it they return the Book to the library. There is one difference: the Books in the library are human beings, and the Books and readers enter into a personal dialogue.
Human Library for the young students is a verbal heritage tool, a way:
  • to share our stories, culture, hobbies, interests, skills in a real face to face situation,
  • to learn from each other and about each other.

As in the real library, the Books are the most important resource of the Human library. The role of the book could be demanding, but it is also interesting and fun.

Great Big THANK YOU for goes to all the wonderful Books for sharing their stories!

The Books in the ISE Human Library related to the theme "Healthy Mind in Healthy Body". Browse the library catalog to see what books students read.
