The Human Library

2 November 2017 - 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Human Library

Build your confidence to create your own cosy home – ‘borrow’ a human ‘book’ in our library and get great one-to-one advice! The human library will include installers, experts and Open Eco Home owners with a variety of experience, ideas and expertise relevant for all kinds of home builds and retrofits.

Also available on the night will be free copies of the Cosy Cambridge handbook, a guide to creating a cosier home, as well as a selection of stalls, and refreshments.

Why a Human Library?

The human library format is great for discussing 1:1 queries and getting personal advice. We hope to facilitate the sharing of information, experience, ideas and expertise so attendees feel confident and inspired to go forth and make changes to their own home.

How it works

Each person sharing experience or advice becomes a ‘book’ in the Human Library. ‘Books’ each have their own area with a couple of seats for guests to sit down and talk. As they enter each guest is given a list of all available ‘books’ and are able to browse around the ‘library’, selecting who they would like to speak to.

There’s no minimum time for visitors when speaking to a ‘book’, but 10 minutes is the maximum for one person. Our librarian will ring a bell every 10 minutes to help keep time.

FREE EVENT. No booking required.
