Welcome to The Human Library.
Just like in a real library, a visitor to the Human Library can borrow a book from a range of titles. The difference is that books are people, and reading is a conversation.
Books in our Human Library come from all walks of life, and each has a different story to tell.
Come along, connect with people you wouldn’t normally meet, and celebrate positive differences in our community.
In partnership with Essex Cultural Diversity Project and Essex Libraries

Do you defy a stereotype? Are you like an open book and do you have valuable experiences that readers could benefit from learning about? Are you motivated to help challenge stigma and stereotypes through dialogue and personal conversations?
The Human Library is coming to Chelmsford Library on Saturday 1 July as part of this year’s Essex Book Festival, and we’re looking for Human Books to come and share their experiences.
The Human Library helps people challenge stereotypes, overcome stigma, and share valuable experiences with others, and provides a platform for talking about difficult subjects in a safe and friendly environment.
