The Human Library can be used to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, to explore diversity, and to stimulate conversations that otherwise might not happen. There are numerous different ways you could get involved: you could help with planning the event, get people to come and read as a Floorwalker, help readers decide which title to explore as a Matchmaker or share your story by becoming a Living Book. The aim is to host 2 events per year.
