Don't miss this -- Wilton Library's Human Library
Saturday, March 23 from 1 to 5pm 
A good book often opens you up to new thinking and ideas. Imagine if that book were an actual human being, conversing with you one-on-one. Wilton Library's Human Library provides just that opportunity. The 'books' available on this day are human books; individuals who have volunteered to share their stories in order to break down barriers based on age, race, sexual orientation, religion, ability, lifestyle choices, or other aspects of their identity. The library is offering 25 "books" ranging in topics from adult ADHD to anorexia, from racism to surviving sexual assault, from being Christian to being Pagan, from defeating addiction to living with Alzheimer's and much more. There is no advance registration; sign up for one-on-one 20-30 minute conversations with the human books at the event. For ages 13+ to adult; ages 10-13 must be accompanied by an adult. Sponsored by Mountainside Treatment Center and the John & Patricia Curran Fund. Meet our Human Books here
