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.

If you would like to register to be a

What is a Book in the Human Library?

What is a Reader?

Online Reading Group: Olio by Tyehimba Jess

Throughout Black History Month, One Book One Bronx, in collaboration with the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College, will host a series of eclectic programs and reading groups as part of the yearlong initiative Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters. Sponsored by the Library of America and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Lift Every Voice seeks to engage participants in a multifaceted exploration of African American poetry. 

Join us on Tuesdays in February for a three-part discussion of
Olio by Tyehimba Jess, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. Part fact, part fiction, the book weaves sonnet, song, and narrative to examine the lives of mostly unrecorded African-American performers directly before and after the Civil War up to World War I.

114 Years of Revolutionary Food Justice: From Upton Sinclair to the Black Panthers, Young Lords and the Ongoing Fight to Change the System

Former members of the New York City chapters of the Black Panthers and the Young Lords Denise Oliver-Velez, Shepard “Bro. Shep” McDaniel and Cleo Silvers join food justice activists and health experts to discuss the history of urban food justice, beginning with the 1906 publication of “The Jungle,” through the revolutionary activists of 1960-70s New York who helped start free breakfast programs for poor children and seniors that eventually lead to the federal government creating a national school breakfast program that serves more than 14.7 million children every day. “114 Years of Revolutionary Food Justice: From Upton Sinclair to the Black Panthers, Young Lords and the Ongoing Fight to Change the System” will be held at the College’s Music Building, in the East Dining Hall, from 1–3 p.m. The program is co-sponsored by a Humanities NY Reading & Discussion grant; the CUNY Institute for Health Equity; along with Lehman’s Social Justice Committee; and the schools of Arts and Humanities, and Health Sciences, Human Services, and Nursing.
