As part of the Boucher Forest Festival, the Boucher Forest Foundation wants to make you live an enriching experience by inviting you to participate in its Living Library.

Living library is a concept through which passionate individuals become living books! They will share their passion with the participants. By visiting the living library, participants will have the occasion to rent a living book for a period of 5-10 minutes and learn more about certain subjects. The living library aims to foster a dialogue between two individuals who, in normal circumstances, would not have the opportunity to.
