Mortola Library is giving new meaning to the term “shelf life” on March 2 as they host a Human Library event, where the Pace Community can check out a living book.

Wanna take out a veteran out for a chat? Or how about a programmer turned professor turned preacher? On Wednesday, March 2, borrow people instead of books as Mortola Library hosts the Human Library from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Library Lobby.

Explore the unique stories and experiences that define students, faculty, and staff at Pace, and challenge your perspectives by meeting the explorers, the pioneers, the courageous, and the resilient of the Pace Community. 

Borrow a human “book” from the Pace Community for 30 minutes of unscripted, meaningful, and challenging conversation.
