Human Library

Real People– Real Conversations.

Thank you for joining us for our first Human Library! Future Human Libraries will be noted here on this page once scheduled.
Stay tuned to our site or our social media for more information on upcoming events. 

What is The Human Library®?
The Human Library® is a library of people. Events are hosted around the world where readers can borrow human beings, who serve as open books, and have conversations they would not normally have access to. Every human book from our bookshelf represents a group in our society that is often subjected to prejudice, stigmatization, or discrimination because of their lifestyle, diagnosis, belief, disability, social status, ethnic origin, etc.

How do I participate?
You Can Be a Reader.
Reading a book in The Human Library® is more than you expect and something you will never forget. It is also an opportunity to meet a lot of people that are different from you and yet you will find you share a lot in common. Respect the book, be curious, and learn from another’s experience. To read one of the human books, come into the event on one of our Human Library® dates.

You can Volunteer to Help at the Event.
We will need volunteers to help check out the books, direct readers to the book locations, keep track of reading time, and more. To volunteer, fill out the volunteer application form.
