What is a Human Library?
The Human Library offers 'living books' to be checked out for a conversation. Each human book is unique and has something to share regarding his or her experiences, perspectives, values, or beliefs. Readers are invited to select books that offer new experiences and viewpoints so that both the book and the reader can learn something new and foster understanding through a shared conversation.
Readers can come any time during the event and peruse the list of titles, choose an available title, and then have a one-on-one conversation with that book. Conversations can be up to 30 minutes long. Find out the rest of the story!

One Day of Conversations: Spiritual Pathways
This Human Library will be different for us in that it will 1) last only one day and 2) it will have a theme of spiritual pathways. We have books that provide a sample of the many ways spirituality is found or expressed or experienced, from having people talk about the importance of their religion or denomination to them, to going through changes in belief, to expression through different media and practices – we are very open in our approach to this.
This Human Library is not a vehicle for convincing others of your view, but is provided in the spirit of all Human Libraries as an opportunity to learn about something new and for a sharing of ideas.
See the Current Catalog! tab above; titles are currently being added so check back again to see what is new.
