They grabbed the opportunities to learn various aspects which were of their interest and knowledge areas. The event witnessed great enthusiasm among students. Some of the books included Visually Challenged, Physically Challenged, Cancer Survivors, Depression Survivors, Alzheimer’s Care Givers, Struggling Entrepreneurs, Young Entrepreneurs, Child Abuse Survivors, Homosexuals and Transgender. All the books shared a unique tale and offered a new perspective to the students about these genres.
At the end the Pragat-I team was appreciated by The Human Library, Indore Chapter for taking up this unique initiative in order to sensitize others on issues of great importance.
The Living Library is an equality tool that seeks to challenge prejudice and discrimination. Living Library functions normally like other libraries. The only difference is that here visitors can browse the catalogue for the available titles, choose the book they want to read, and borrow it for a limited period of time. After reading the books, they are expected to return the book to the library and, if they want, they can borrow another.
