THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH
10 AM - 3 PM

Stop in anytime between 10am - 3pm on Thursday,
November 9th to checkout a human book 

from our first ever Human Library.


The Human Library or “Menneskebiblioteket” as it
is called in Danish, was developed in Copenhagen in
the spring of 2000 as a project for Roskilde Festival
by Ronni Abergel and his brother Dany and
colleagues Asma Mouna and Christoffer Erichsen.

The original event was open eight hours a day,
for four days straight and featured over fifty different titles.
The broad selection of books provided readers with ample choice to challenge their stereotypes and so they did.
More than a thousand readers took advantage leaving
books, librarians, organizers and readers stunned
at the impact of the Human Library.
