The Human Library originates in Denmark and has spread across the globe, including this November to your local Isaac Waldman Jewish Public Library! The program is based on the idea of “unjudging” others: we all have preconceived notions about others and the Human Library seeks to challenge these preconceptions. The program allows readers to ask our human books respectful though sometimes difficult questions about themselves and their lived experience.
