SJCPLS to promote unity in the community with “The Living Library”

The St. Johns County Public Library System, in partnership with the St. Johns Cultural Council and the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine, is presenting “The Living Library” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25, in The Waterworks, 184 San Marco Ave., St. Augustine.

Aimed at creating a conversation on culture, knowledge, and compassion, “The Living Library” will allow attendees to hear from experts, or “human books,” in various professional, cultural, and casual fields. Speakers will discuss and answer questions on topics that include fire rescue, sustainable and locally sourced food, ballet, astronomy, and the history of textile arts in Northeast Florida. In addition, “human books” from The Lincolnville Museum, The Stetson Kennedy Foundation, and the UF/IFAS Extension Services Master Gardener program will be joining the program.

The Waterworks, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, may be accessed through both parking entrances of the Main Branch Library, 1960 N. Ponce De Leon Blvd. The program is free, and no tickets or reservations are required. Refreshments will be provided.
