The Human Library is a creative and practical method for helping people to understand and appreciate difference and diversity. It is a useful learning strategy that encourages and supports the development of respectful, inclusive and cohesive cultures. Human Libraries help people, groups and communities to work to ensure that people enjoy their rights as humans as part of day-to-day life.
