Human Library will be held virtually this year, via Zoom. By clicking the PARTICIPATE link above, you’ll be entered into a zoom meeting.

Participants will enter a Zoom room where they can learn more about Human Library, choose a book to read, and then be directed to a breakout room with that book.

All PYGMALION 2020 programming is FREE and ALL VIRTUAL — see our Partners page to see the amazing list of organizations that helped make this possible.

Though our programming is free, please consider donating to benefit these organizations.


A Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals volunteer as human ‘books’ and participants in the event can ‘read’ the book- meaning they would have a one on one conversation with the volunteer and share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience. ‘Books’ are volunteers from all walks of life who have experienced discrimination based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability and other aspects of their life. The Human Library provides the opportunity for the community to share and understand the experiences of others in their community.
