Human Library
Human Library

Sometimes the root of understanding one another's stories is getting answers to the difficult questions and during The Human Library™ those questions are expected, appreciated and answered. This event is meant to challenge the labels we put on others by participating in a unique reading experience; where real people are on loan as "books." "Readers" are given a positive framework for a 20-30 minute conversation to connect, inquire and challenge stereotypes and prejudices that separate us.

This year's Human Library is brought to the Treasure Valley by Ada and Meridian libraries as a feature of Storyfort during Treefort Music Fest. It is free and open to the public to participate.

Books will be on loan at The Owyhee in downtown Boise, on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28. Find out more about the event here.
