Don't believe us?


Here's what a past participant had to say about our very first Real Life Library in February of 2017!

"Today was Madison's first ever Real Life Library... when you see one advertised (anywhere), GO. Just ... do it. People connecting,​ ​inspiring​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​opening​ ​worlds,​ ​challenging​ ​ideas​ ​and​ ​‘norms’,​ ​telling​ ​of​ ​their​ ​courage​ ​and​ ​sharing​ ​a​ ​piece​ ​of their​ ​soul...it's​ ​all​ ​there​ ​for​ ​you​ ​to​ ​experience​ ​in​ ​an​ ​afternoon.​ ... This is the first time in my life I am wholly embracing those identities, those parts of myself which have been inconspicuously hanging around for years, patiently waiting for me to SEE them...and to LOVE them. The day was absolutely amazing, and on my walk home, I saw this heart... LOVE WINS. We all have a story to share. I invite you to share yours, and check out a person...I mean a "book" =) ...when you get the chance."

Food and drink will be provided.

As per Madison Public Library policy, children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
