WPL's Human Library Project: Interview with Mike

Subject

Mike

Description

Video of a sit-down biographical interview with local senior Mike, as part of WPL's Human Library Project. It was filmed January 25, 2024 at Wesley-Robins Retirement Village in Welland.

The project features local seniors sharing their unique histories. These are valued citizens, and this collection allows for the preservation of their wisdom and stories, and also ensures they will be shared for years to come.

This video and others in the series are also available to view on a digital kiosk at the Main Branch.


From Wikipedia: "The Human Library is an international organization and movement that first started in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2000. It aims to address people's prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally meet. The organization uses a library analogy of lending people rather than books."
