What is a Human Library?

PPLD’s Human Library seeks to engage our community in civic conversation by providing an opportunity for people to connect one-on-one with those they might otherwise never have a chance to talk – people who may have life experiences, stories, or beliefs different from their own. The public library is an organization dedicated to serving its entire community regardless of background, economic status, age, and human condition. A Human Library event reflects the mission of our library and like the public library, it reflects the needs and interests of the community.
