Every human has stories of their struggles, successes, leadership, stories contributing to the success of patrons, stories of innovation they have started, and above all a lot of wisdom exists out there. The idea of Humans of the library is to make available an online interaction space, where there are potential storytellers (humans who have compelling stories and experiences) and there are listeners. So, this space facilitates deeper understanding, acknowledging diversity, connection, and learning.
The following are the HUMANS of the library and they will share their stories with the participants.
