What are the available titles?

Our collection of "human books" presents a diverse, fascinating, and inspiring range of life experiences. To see which titles are available, flip through tthe program to read more about each book.

How do I check out a book?

Stop by the Newport Recreation Center Multipurpose Room 124 on Saturday, September 23rd. See which titles are available. First come, first served.

How long can I check out a book?

Each session runs for a maximum of 30 minutes.

Do I have to stay for the entire 30 minutes?

Either the borrower of the human book can end the session at any time at their own discretion.

What if I run out of questions to ask?

Not to worry. We'll have a list of sample questions available to readers at the event. Our staff will also be on hand to help.
