A Human Library® is an event that creates a safe place for serious conversations about often difficult and perhaps sensitive topics and allows us to examine our own conscious or unconscious bias. At the Human Library®, our Books are people who are on loan to Readers (YOU!). Books have life experiences that reflect stereotyping, and bias in our society and are ready to not just tell a story but to engage in a conversation with you. They expect and appreciate difficult questions that lead to greater understanding. Every Book on our Bookshelf has experienced stereotyping, stigma or challenges due to the lifestyle, profession, diagnosis, belief, disability, or social status. to name a few. At the Human Library® we invite you to examine and explore, the topics on our Bookshelf and possibly meet your own prejudice or better understand the life of one who experiences stigmas and stereotypes.
