The Human Library is an event designed to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices, and encourage understanding and compassion, simply through the art of one-on-one conversation. It works just like a regular library, except that the "Books" to be checked out are human beings with unique individual experiences to share (including many facets of restorative justice) with their "Readers." Participation is free and open to all; sign-ups start on-site at 10:30 am the day of the event.
