What is the Human Library?
The Human Library is an organization that began in Denmark in 2000 and now has chapters [called Depots] all over the world.  In a Human Library, real people are “Books” on loan to Readers, giving Readers the opportunity to listen to their stories first-hand. 

Human Library NYC public events break down social barriers by providing a safe platform for individuals to challenge their own stereotypes and prejudices.

What is a Book in the Human Library?

Book is a volunteer who represents a stigmatized group, willing to share their story, and help challenge what is being shared and understood about their topic.

What is a Reader?

Reader is curious about the Book, can ask questions of the Book, and is respectful of the Book they are reading.

Your Story is Important.
