I like this image from Best Colleges Online, and posted on Stephen’s Lighthouse as well. It might be a tad overcrowded, but I still like it:

The Evolution of the Book

The Living Library is an innovative method designed to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices and encourage understanding.The main characteristics of the project are to be found in its simplicity and positive approach.

In it’s initial form the Living Library is a mobile library set up as a space for dialogue and interaction. Visitors to the Living Library are given the opportunity to speak informally with “people on loan”; this latter group being extremely varied in age, sex and cultural background.

Here are some of the posters from all over the world:

LivingLibrary@Limassol,Cyprus.

LivingLibrary@Limassol,Cyprus.

Living Library>Living Library at Kings Garden

Living Library>Living Library at Kings Garden

Living Library>LivingLibrary@Ljubljana,Slovenia.

Living Library>LivingLibrary@Ljubljana,Slovenia.

The Living Library enables groups to break stereotypes by challenging the most common prejudices in a positive and humorous manner. It is a concrete, easily transferable and affordable way of promoting tolerance and understanding.

It is a “keep it simple”, “no-nonsense” contribution to social cohesion in multicultural societies. Read more about the history HERE.

I like this series of advertisements from Capital Magazine:

Perhaps we should also have one like this, as students are forever predicting the demise of libraries …
