Human Libray Chicago is happy to be partnering with National Veterans Art Museum for their fourth annual event! This event is free and open to the public. View the current exhibition and “check out a book” while you are here!

A Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals volunteer as human ‘books’ and participants in the event can ‘read’ the book- meaning they would have a one on one conversation with the volunteer and share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience. ‘Books’ are volunteers from all walks of life who have experienced discrimination based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability and other aspects of their life. The Human Library provides the opportunity for the community to share and understand the experiences of others in their community. Not sure what a Human Library event looks like?
