Living Libraries

Some library users read to expand their views, learn new things, and surprise themselves. Imagine if instead of getting those elements from a book, you could get them from a real person.

That’s the concept behind Europe’s Living Libraries initiative. The organization’s mission is to dispel stereotypes and break down discrimination by connecting people from different backgrounds and letting them learn about each other through conversation.

Though the first Living Library was set up over 20 years ago, the concept carries over into modern times by affecting individuals daily. You can read about how one Living Library exchange in France is changing people’s opinions.
