We are pleased to be licensed to run Human Library™ in Singapore.

The Human Library™ is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers. A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.

Join the movement as a Human Book


Have an interesting story from your life to share? Willing to spend an hour speaking with enthusiastic strangers?

We always need new books. Simply put, there is no Human Library without Human Books. Our Books share stories about times where they faced prejudices or stereotypes, maybe a turning point in their life, a situation that felt hopeless, or a difficult decision. Stories are shared through respectful conversations with members of the public. By volunteering, Books give their permission for the readers at Human Library events to ask questions about their life, and to talk openly about issues.

We promise that being a book in the Human Library is more than you expect and something you will never forget.

So please fill in this application form to the best of your ability. Once processed you will be contacted by our librarian.

Thank you for your time and interest in working with the Human Library.
