Human Library


Shropshire Libraries have teamed up with the Human Library™, an international organisation and movement, to set up a Human Library™ book depot in Shropshire. 

The Human Library™ is a collection of individual human beings, drawn from different minority or marginalised groups in our community, that have somehow been exposed to stigma, misunderstanding or discrimination.

Each Human Library™ event is designed to facilitate interactions that challenge stereotypes and prejudice through conversation. During each 30 minute conversation, members of the public as ‘readers’ can access, encounter and engage with the life stories of each human ‘book’, by asking questions and by listening to the answers.
