The Human Library

Meet Our Human Books




Date: October 7 - 8, 2022 Time: 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM Location: Folio, 93 Pike St


DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER


The Human Library is a movement that aims to challenges stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. First started in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2000, the Human Library grew into a global movement.


In the Human library, a BOOK is human volunteer on loan to have personal conversation with you, the READER .

Books are people who defy stereotypes and can answer questions to help challenge assumptions about a given subject based on their personal experiences.


Hosted at Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum, this two day event will feature a collection of local Books. Readers will have the chance to borrow one of our Books from a selection of titles, learn about the Book's individual experiences and engage in conversation.

The rules for readers are simple, respect the book, be curious, bring the book back on time and in the same condition it was given to you. Both parties have the right to end the conversation at any time. Register for free to join the conversation & Unjudge Someone!
