November is Adoption Awareness month and The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan is kicking it off with The Human Library.
A Human Library is a way for people to reach out and connect with individuals in their community that they might not normally engage with. Visitors to our library have an opportunity to borrow Human Books for 15 minutes in which they will engage in a meaningful conversation – where tough questions are expected and encouraged.
Human Libraries promote tolerance, break down prejudice and celebrate differences and encourage understanding of people who have may have different life experiences or come from different backgrounds. Our collection of Human Books has a common theme based around permanency and adoption.
Adoption has changed profoundly throughout the years, yet many myths and misunderstandings still exist around the impact of adoption. We believe that a Human Library is the perfect way to challenge negative stereotypes and empower people with an adoption connection to have their voices heard.
