What is a Human Library?
A Human Library is an event designed to promote conversations between people of different backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences to break down stereotypes and encourage inclusion. In a Human Library, our "books" are people, eager to share their experiences with people. The Human Library is a worldwide movement. For more information, you can visit The Human Library Organization at humanlibrary.org.
