The Human Library


A Human Library is just that - a library where the “books” are living people who volunteer to share their stories, unique interests and life experience with “readers” - members of the community. Chester Public Library implemented the Human Library approach, and now offers the opportunity to "borrow" one of their "living books" for a 30-minute conversation at the library. Patrons can chat with a fantasy football player, learn about living gluten-free, or start learning to play the ukelele, to name just a few options.


At this meeting, Sue Zirlen, who brought the Human Library to Chester, will speak to the group about the Human Library and her vision for it as a regional endeavor. This meeting is open to anyone who would like to learn more.
