Atlantic Canada Career Month Human Library Resource Material

The Human Library is called a Human Library because the humans are the books. It is set up so that students in small groups can “check-out” several books to find out more about their work. For this event community members who do various kinds of work are invited into the school so that students can talk with them and learn about what they do and also about local employment opportunities.

Students will learn that, whatever their interests and skills—whether they like building things, being outside, crunching numbers, writing or being around people— there are opportunities that reflect those interests and use those skills.
