Human Library Project

Saturday, January 13, 2018 -
11:00am to 1:30pm
Location: 
Chester County Library

The Human Library is a program in which people volunteer to be "books" and share their personal story (as a member of a group that experiences stigma, prejudice and/or discrimination) in a structured environment with "readers" who engage in dialogue and active listening in order to analyze their personal prejudices, misconceptions, or stereotypes. It's normal to have questions about people that are different from us and with this project, "readers" will be able to actually ask those questions in a safe environment and "books" will have the opportunity to dispel myths and stereotypes and put a personal take on them. Human Library events are being held throughout the world, and Chester County Library is excited to become a part of this movement.

As a reader, you can expect to check out books at our event on the subjects of multiracial/multicultural families, veganism, being Muslim in America, parenting a gay son, and more.
