A Human Library brings the library to life.
Instead of offering books made of paper, though, we offer a real person that can be signed-out for a one-to-one conversation, with a goal of breaking down barriers. It is a place where personal stories and experiences come together and “readers“ listen, question, share and learn. “Books“ share diverse life experiences, stories and perspectives in an effort to create understanding, awareness of others and also to create a sense of community.
Our “books“ belong to one or many diverse groups in society that are often stigmatized as a result of who they are, choices they have made, or an experience they have had. We want to break through the stereotypes and prejudices that divide people by creating a safe space where honest conversations can take place, and curious questions can be asked.
WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR “BOOKS“ ~~
