Want to know more about issues such as mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, living with blindness or even working with sex offenders then Wisbech library is the place to be this weekend (Saturday).

Borrowers will have the chance to loan a person for up to 30 minutes as part of an exciting initiative aimed at breaking down barriers and challenging the stigma and prejudice normally attached to these kind of problems.

The SUN Network ( are holding a human library offering people the opportunity to borrow a person instead of a book, and to then ask any question about their life.

This is the second human library to be run in Cambridgeshire and will run at the library from 10am to 1pm with the aim of bringing people together to have interesting conversations and break down barriers.
