The Human Library: Everyone Has A Story
Check out a Human Book @ Oshawa Public Libraries! Borrow a Human Book for a conversation and discover, “You can’t judge a book by its cover!” The Human Library is a great opportunity to talk to different members of our community and celebrate diverse experiences and viewpoints.

- Life After the Monastery (Buddhism)
