As a special event for Mental Health Week (5 – 11 October) the State Library and public libraries are partnering with Department of Health, Mental Health Division to present Living Libraries.
The Living Library twists the concept of a traditional library, where you borrow a person, not a book. These books are not your usual library books; they are actually living people with experiences and stories to share. This also gives the borrowers a chance to ask questions.
Living Libraries will be at these libraries between 7-9 October.
Please book by emailing MentalHealthReception.RoyalSt@health.wa.gov.au
