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 3 human library programs. Two 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. We hope to continue to develop this program, making it an annual event.
