Check out real life human beings at Himmel Park branch library, on Sat. April 2, 2016 from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. This is not an April Fools’ joke. Just use your library card tomorrow at 1035 N. Treat Ave.
“Members of the public will have an opportunity to “check out” a
human “book” in order to have a one-on-one conversation with
that person about that individual’s religious/spiritual/
philosophical beliefs. This program will offer the community a
chance for dialogue, sharing, and learning about other
traditions, belief systems and different ways of thinking about
The organizations represented will include (among others):
Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson, International Society
for Krishna Consciousness, Islamic Center of Tucson, Tucson
Area Wiccan/Pagan Network and Free Thought Arizona.”
Additional people to check out from these groups: the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, the Baha’i, as well as the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Temple Emanu-El, Satanic Temple, and Church of Scientology. “We tried to invite people from a wide variety of organizations, while highlighting some less familiar belief systems in order to encourage dialogue with a diverse population. Stay tuned for additional updates throughout the week, and we hope to see you this upcoming Saturday.”

Carolyn’s note: I suggested a Buddhist group in Tucson. I’m sure they would be open to more suggestions of knowledgeable humans to literally “check out”.
