Surrey firefighter Nancy Innes talks to a visitor at the City Centre Library last Saturday at the second-annual Human Library Project.

Twenty 'human books' told their stories in one-on-one conversations with participants.

Innes, an acting captain, joined the Surrey Fire Department in 1992 when there were no female firefighters in the Lower Mainland.
