Also visit the Human Library stall for a chance to “read a human book” and listen to someone else’s personal story.

And if you include a visit to the Library’s “Pop-Up Library” stall on the day, you’re on your way to completing the LIBRARY PASSPORT competition and going in the draw to win an Apple watch!
