This event connects Human Books with Pawling Central School District (PCSD) educators to enhance relationships between the school and the community. When you “become a book,” you choose your topic and share your story with a small group of adults (1-4 people) in a 20-minute conversation.
The Pawling Human Library Project seeks to engage Pawling Central School District educators with school and community resources in the form of human books. The purpose of the Human Library is to inspire and support authentic learning experiences for students by deepening the connections between school and community and growing educator knowledge of the diversity of the Pawling community.
The Human Library Project allows participants to engage one another in meaningful communication in a context in which everyone’s story is valued.
