The Rotary Club of Sedona partnered with Sedona International City of Peace and the Sedona Library to create a special experience to further understanding and acceptance on International Peace Day, September 21.
 
The Human Library™ featured 34 "human books" who shared their experiences as people who are frequently stereotyped because of who they are, their appearance or their beliefs. Members of the Rotary Club of Sedona, David Simmer and Holli Ploog helped to plan the event. Linda Clark and Miki Dzugan helped with publicizing it. Several Rotarian volunteers greeted guests and helped them to find the "books" they wanted to hear from. The Rotary Club provided refreshments for the "books," t-shirts and buttons that were used to distinguish volunteers and books.

Little brains experience 90% of their development before their owners reach kindergarten. Studies show that reading to preschool children makes a significant difference to a child's success in school. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library program, which mails age-appropriate books each month to registered children from birth to age 5 free of charge, has been shown to make a difference in the communities in which it is available.
 
It costs less than $30 to provide books for one child for a year!
