Welcome to the Morse Institute Library’s Living Library!
A Living Library is based on the idea that every person has a story to tell. In this library, instead of borrowing books, you borrow people to engage in meaningful conversation. Each one of our “books” has a unique and interesting perspective, and a lot can be learned from sitting down with someone who has a different story to tell.
We hope that by sitting down with someone different from ourselves, we will learn what it is like to walk in another’s shoes while gaining insight and perspective into our own lives and community.
