Have you ever been misunderstood or judged as a stereotype?
Become a book!
There are many factors that influence how people judge other people. Physical features, beliefs, emotions, lifestyles, are just a few. Maybe you have experienced something significant, whether it's tragic or phenomenal, that is often hard for others to understand.
The purpose of the Human Library is to open communication between diverse people in order to better understand those who are different from ourselves. There is so much to learn. The Human Library offers a safe place for "books" to share their stories and "readers" to ask questions.
Or Nominate a Book!
Don't judge a book by its cover. Do you know someone who is a shining example of why that statement is true? Maybe that person needs a slight nudge to share their story for whatever reason. A good book would be someone who is comfortable talking about their story. The purpose of the Human Library is to promote inclusion and understanding.
