Thanks to my co-worker, Terrie, I found out about the "Living Library" that recently opened at Douglas College in New Westminster, B.C. The concept is simple, you can borrow people for a half hour to pick their brains! The library has experts in such topics as cats, energy conservation, and sea kayaking! What will libraries think of next?
