We invite you to try out a new form of communication called "Living Library." This

library works in the same way as a normal one, but the "books" are people, and "readers" - the guests. You choose a book, you are interested in from the catalogue, and "read" it, breaking your established stereotypes.

You will be able to "read" the following books: a Foster mother of many children, a Volunteer-foreigner, a Disabled person, an Ex-Prisoner, an Ex- Drug Abuser, a HIV-positive, a Gay person, a Lesbian, a Black person .

How does the Living Library work?

- Living Library will be held in the premises of Donetsk City Youth Center from 12.00 to 14.00

- You must register as a reader and get a reader card

- You choose a book,you would like to read, from the catalogue

- If the book is in English

- Living Library will provide you with a Living Dictionary

- If a book, you would like to read, is already taken by another reader, you can choose another or wait

- You will have 15 minutes to "read" a book you have chosen


What are the rules of the Living Library?

- Only the registered readers, who know and follow the library rules, may take a book

- You can take only one book at a time

- The book can be read by two friends or by a family

- The book can be taken for 15 minutes. Readers can extend the reading time up to 15 more minutes, coordinating it with the librarian

- Do not cause any harm to the book. The reader is responsible for the condition of the book
