Are you passionate about books, learning, and community service? Looking for ways to engage with your local community and contribute to its enrichment? You’ve come to the right place! Our library is not just about books; it brings people together and creates a thriving community. Here, you’ll find a hub of knowledge, cultural activities, and opportunities for personal growth. We offer a wide range of programs and events that cater to all ages and interests, from book clubs and author talks to educational workshops and art exhibitions. Our space is a sanctuary for curious minds, a platform for local artists, and a center for constructive dialogue. By joining us, you become part of a movement that values learning, celebrates diversity, and fosters a sense of belonging. So come, explore our shelves, participate in our events, and be an active member of a community that cherishes the power of knowledge and the joy of shared experiences.

Please open the tabs below to see how you can get involved.

Do you defy a stereotype? Are you like an open book and do you have valuable experiences that Readers could benefit from learning about? Are you motivated to help challenge stigma and stereotypes through dialogue and personal conversations? Then maybe you can become an Open Book and engage in conversations with our Readers. You can learn more about the Human Library at humanlibrary.org.

We can promise that volunteering with the Human Library is more than you expect and something you will never forget. It is also an opportunity to meet a lot of people that are different from you, and yet you will find you share a lot in common.

Sound interesting and exciting? Then please fill in this application form to the best of your ability. Once processed you will be contacted by us.

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