What is a Human Library?

The Human Library is an opportunity:

  • to engage in one-to-one conversation with someone you may not otherwise meet
  • ask questions, hear honest answers    
  • build bridges to understanding
  • conversations last up to 20 minutes

 

                                                                                                                           

How did the Human Library Project begin?

The Human Library™ is a multicultural dialogue event designed to engage participants in one-to-one conversations to bring greater understanding and awareness to issues that we find in society today. This dialogue framework began in Copenhagen in 2000 (http://humanlibrary.org) and offers patrons the opportunity to "check out" a human book -- a person with a story to share about stereotypes/prejudices they have overcome. Once a human book is checked out the patron has the chance to listen, ask, and learn from the experiences of others.
