What is a Human Library?

A Human Library is an event that encourages people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other. Human books are volunteers who are willing to share their stories and/or their expertise. Participants can “borrow” human books for up to 20 mins at a time in order to have a conversation and ask questions about the book’s topic.

The library is a safe place to have some positive conversations to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, learn about a career, or just to get to know another individual. To apply to be a book (open to everyone from the CCSU community) and find out more about the Human Library please go to
