Now Recruiting! Human Library Participants

Did you know that not all libraries have books? Coming to Ellensburg this spring, the Human Library offers the opportunity for real people (“books”) to share their experiences and stories as they engage with the community (“readers”) in conversation.

If you defy a stereotype and are motivated to help challenge stigma through dialogue and personal conversations, then maybe the Human Library can publish you to our local readers in Ellensburg.

The Human Library is a nonprofit organization that hosts conversations designed to challenge stigma and stereotypes. These events create “a safe space for dialogue where topics are discussed openly” and “where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.” Human Library events have been organized in 85 countries worldwide since 2000.

If you're interested in serving as a book for the Human Library, please fill out our application (also linked below). Once submitted, you will be contacted by one of our local Human Library organizers for further steps. All are welcome to apply.

The Ellensburg Human Library is a joint collaboration between the CWU EthicsLab, CWU Libraries, and the City of Ellensburg. Our Ellensburg event will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at the Hal Holmes Community Center (201 Ruby St, Ellensburg, WA 98926).
