Human Library: Real People, Real Conversations  

A library of human beings, the Human Library is a collection of people from all walks of life featuring “human books” available for "checkout." Individuals serve as human “books” and participants can “read” the book by engaging in a conversation with the book on loan. Readers have the opportunity to have a 20-minute conversation with their book selections.


PPLD has hosted three human library programs and we are excited to announce our next Human Library program will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 12-4 p.m. at the East Library. For more information on our next Human Library event, click here


Previously, two Human Library events were held in the spring and fall of 2017. In 2018, books were added to the collection and a third program was held in March. Click here for the 2017 catalog with book titles and descriptions and here for the 2018 book titles and descriptions. Check back soon for a list of titles for the 2019 event!
