Event Description

What is a Human Library?
A Human Library is a way for people to reach out and connect with individuals in their community with whom they might not normally interact. Visitors to a library have an opportunity during a planned event to borrow and engage in conversation with a Human Book. Human Libraries promote tolerance, celebrate differences and encourage understanding of people who come from varied cultural or lifestyle backgrounds.

What is a Human Book?
Human Books are volunteers who are willing to share their stories with others in a safe environment.

What is a Reader?
Readers check out Human Books for 30 minutes. By doing so, they have the opportunity, during a planned event, to participate in one-on-one or small-group conversations with Human Books to ask questions and to learn about another’s life experiences or special interests.

If you are interested in sharing your story as a Human Book, please contact Mari Tsuchiya at mtsuchiya@library.rochester.edu or (585)275-5506.
