Everyone has a story to share... 
Let me tell you mine! 

The Human Library™ is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue.


The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers.  A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.
