Human Library logo: a scribbled stick figure with a book for a head and the words Human Library

Challenge stereotypes through respectful conversation with others. Create understanding through dialogue.

Volunteers act as "books" in the Human Library. These books can be checked out by "readers", at which point they engage in conversations and share stories of diversity and hardship openly. Readers are encouraged to ask questions freely, and to get honest answers in return.
