The Friends of the Human Library’s mission is to provide support for Human Library programs and book depot services around the world, to raise funds that will enable us to build more book collections, host more events and reach even more readers. One conversation at a time.
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. The Human Library is a danish idea from 2000 and is now available in more than 80 countries.

“Thank you so much for an experience which is quite untranslatable….words don’t do it justice.”

“This helped me better understand myself and honestly, I mean “Human Library”, sounded kind of square to me, so I had never expected it to be such a powerful and moving experience.”
