What is a Human Library?
A Human Library is where “books” are people who are labeled and available for “check out,” creating a cross section of “books” representing the diversity of our campus community.

The “books” are not experts — instead, they tell their story and dialog with the “reader.” This allows participants to engage with people from all walks of life and break down barriers that are cornerstones of prejudice.

The first Human Library was held in Copenhagen, Denmark by a small group of young people called “Stop the Violence” in 2000.

Real people.
Real conversations.
Share stories.
Challenge stereotypes.
Build understanding.
