Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

The Human Library™ is an international initiative designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. It’s a place where real people are on loan to readers, and a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. As in a traditional library, visitors to the Human Library can choose Books from a range of titles. But at the Human Library, Books are people, and the reading is a conversation!

NOW. Apply to be a Human Book and share your experiences as part of the Human Library. If you are interested in being a book, complete the application.  You will be contacted for an interview. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected] All responses are strictly confidential.

LATER. Come check out a Living Book and learn about a different culture or community through questions and conversations.

The Human Library is designed to be a welcoming, inclusive, non-partisan space with no political agenda.
