With libraries quickly reformulating their mission statements to survive, this innovative library believes stories are much better shared when they come from the source. At the Human Library, you actually borrow a person who has stories to tell gathered from a unique life experience.

“For half an hour, you can sit down with a prostitute, a politician, or a funeral director, all of whom have incredible stories to share…unlike a book, they’re able to answer your questions and tailor the storytelling experience to you.”
