Kingston Living Library Project – Your Story Starts Here

Kingston Libraries is looking for seniors in our community with funny, interesting, and inspiring stories to tell.

If you know someone who would be willing to tell their story for up to 15 minutes, and be video-recorded for posterity, let us know! Once recorded, our living library books will be featured on KingstonLibraryTube.

This pilot project is designed to promote understanding, break down prejudice and embrace senior members of our community by valuing their history and culture. It is inspired by the Human Library© concept started in Copenhagen twenty years ago.

The project will culminate in a launch event later in the year and some live storytelling by the participants with a q & a session.
