A worldwide movement for social change. The Human Library is an international movement that started in Denmark in the year 2000 and has since made its way through over 80 countries. Human Library at Fairfield University was created with the permission of the Human Library Organization.

The 2021 Planning Team is Lisa Thornell, Emily Porter-Fyke, and Matthew Blaine. For questions, contact Lisa.

WHAT IS THE HUMAN LIBRARY?

The Human Library® is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. ‘Human Books’ are Fairfield University students, faculty, staff who have volunteered to share their story to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual orientation, class, gender identity, lifestyle choices, disability or other aspects of their life.

The Human Library provides the opportunity for the Fairfield University community to share and understand the experiences of others.
