Challenging prejudice through conversation

Social Contact


Social Change

An inclusive way to challenge prejudice

The Human Library is an international equalities movement that challenges prejudice and discrimination through social contact. It uses the language and mechanism of a library to facilitate respectful conversations that can positively change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards members of our communities who are at risk of exclusion and marginalisation.

Human Library UK is a website managed by the Outsiders Community Interest Company to support Human Library organisers and volunteers in the UK. Over time we aim to provide all the resources, guidance and support that organisers and volunteers will need through this website.
