At the Libraries: Checking Out Humans


Every week, Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there's something fun going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

Sure, all the libraries have books, but wouldn't it be cool if you could check out actual humans, and find out what it's like to be them? There is such a thing, called the Human Library, and Toronto Public Library has a program that sounds great!
But Canadian libraries can be dangerous places. A reader sent me this true story about a man who died after being shot with a crossbow at the Main Street library in Toronto. Turns out it was a family drama.

If you follow a great library blog, site, or Twitter account, please share it with me! Send your tips to or leave me a comment. See previous installments of At the Libraries here.
