Thinking Outside The Box

November 2, 2006

The Librarydude writes about a program in Sweden where a library lends out people for 45 minute sessions. These people, a Iman, a Muslim woman, a lesbian and a Gypsy woman, are called “Living Books.” The Living Books are volunteers, and people can check them out and ask the living books any questions during that 45 minute period. How cool!! We need more ideas like this in libraries.
