“Human Library”

The Library of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura is organizing USJP Human Library on the 27th of March, 2019 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the university.

The Human Library is a place where the ‘human books’ tell their own stories and special experiences. This concept was organized in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2000. Now it is widely organized by libraries in many parts in the world.

We have invited a few eminent personnel as our ‘human books’. You can read those ‘human books’ – that means you would be able to have a conversation with them and they will share their views and experiences with you.

If you like to meet any of them individually, get details from Tel:011-2758531 (office hours) or email: library@sjp.ac.lk.

Contact us on or before 25th March 2019 to reserve your place.
