Program Description

Event Details

Welcomes to the library of people! Instead of borrowing a book, indulge in the experience of checking out a person. Challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue.

The Human Library allows people to come together in an informal, one on one setting, to have comfortable dialogue about often uncomfortable topics. Our human books are drawn from fascinating members of our communities who have fascinating stories that you MUST hear.

How it works: Come in during the hours of 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. and spend 20 minutes reading the following books. Have a conversation, ask questions, stay open and learn.

This program was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Dallas Public Library.
