BOOKS will come to life in libraries across Norfolk next week.
A unique mobile library service is to loan out real people with a tale to tell.
Their true-life stories might include tragedy, mystery or romance, but all will be fact not fiction.
Norfolk is at the centre of the Human Library movement in Britain and next week the country's first mobile Human Library hits the road.

People in Thetford, Great Yarmouth, Dereham, Cromer, King's Lynn and Norwich will be able to browse, “borrow” a book and enjoy up to half an hour's conversation with their chosen title.
Every “book” will have a refugee theme as the library is part of national Refugee Week.

Or meet a hospital doctor who arrived in Britain as a penniless three-year-old, fleeing Vietnamese death camps.
