The South Mountain Community Library is proud to announce the return of the Human Library, an event that originated in 2000 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Human Library Events feature “human books” who volunteer their time to share their experiences with a particular topic and engage with readers in thoughtful conversations in a safe space. The goal of human libraries are outlined as follows: "It aims to address people's prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally meet. The organization uses a library analogy of lending people rather than books. These people have "experienced prejudice, social exclusion or stigma," and participants can ask them questions so as to "learn about the other person and also challenge their own prejudices."
Seating will be on a first come, first served basis.
This event is offered in partnership with the South Mountain Community College.
