What is a Human Library?
Our Human Library is a “collection” of local volunteers who will meet with you one-on-one to talk about their specific experience, hobby, interest, work, or lifestyle.
How do I check out a “book”?
You can reserve one of the human library “books” and “borrow” the expert for a meeting. Library staff will make the meeting arrangements. All “books” have completed background checks and meetings can only take place in a library.
What kinds of “books” can I check out?
Our collection includes:
- a critical care nurse
- a search and rescue volunteer
- someone who works to integrate people coming out of jail back into society
- a reflexologist
- a funeral director
- a parent of twins
- an alderman
- a Camino de Santiago pilgrim
- a person with body art
- a person who uses animals in research
- a knitter
- and many more.
