The Human Library, developed by the World Culture Center in Denmark, allows people to check out human "books" for a unique learning experience.

Personal stories are one of the most effective ways of learning, and research has demonstrated that personal contact is also one of the most effective ways of breaking down stereotypes and prejudices.

The "books" on our shelves have volunteered to share their stories in order to build understanding in our community. They will give you the opportunity to ask questions you always wanted to ask, but were afraid of getting too personal.
