Toronto’s Human Library
Living Books are people just like you and me and for different reasons they are subjected to stereotyping and prejudices. They are open about who they are and prepared to share their experiences. A Living Book is a person who has chosen to be a public representative of a certain group.
Living Books can be found in the Toronto Public Library. The library lets us check out humans as well as books.The idea is a way to break down prejudice by bringing people of different backgrounds together for one-on-one conversation.
