The Australian: Library launches ‘borrow a person’

The Living Library project will enable people to come face-to-face with their prejudices in the hopes of altering their preconceived notions, Ulla Brohed of the Malmo Library in southern Sweden said.

This weekend, nine people, including a homosexual, an imam, a journalist, a Muslim woman and a gypsy, will be available at the Malmo Library for members of the public to “borrow” for a 45 minute conversation in the library’s outdoor cafe.
