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 in the future and is recruiting human Books. During the event, patrons check-out human Books for one-on-one conversations with the goal of fostering dialogue that challenges stereotypes and prejudices. 

Do you defy a stereotype and have valuable experiences readers could benefit from learning about? Are you motivated to help challenge stigma and stereotypes through dialogue and personal conversation?
