Summer Reading Experience

Human Library Application

You can borrow all sorts of things from the library – how about borrowing a fresh perspective? In a Human Library, people are books and the reading is a conversation! Each human book is unique and has something to share regarding his or her experiences, perspectives, values, or beliefs.  Readers are invited to select books that offer new experiences and viewpoints so that both the book and the reader can learn something new and foster understanding through a shared conversation. We are looking for human books representing a variety of ethnicities, nationalities, religions, occupations, and characteristics, as well as unique and interesting hobbies or experiences.
