Human Library

Human LibraryCheck Out a Human Book…

The aim of the Human Library is to encourage conversations that challenge stereotypes and prejudices. During a Human Library event, customers check out human Books to read through one-on-one 20-minute conversations.

The Safety Harbor Public Library will host a Human Library event on Saturday, January 21 from 11am to 3pm. During the event, patrons check-out human Books for one-on-one conversations with the goal of fostering dialogue that challenges stereotypes and prejudices.
