The concept of the Human Library was created

      in 2000 in Denmark and the first public event
      for "reading" human books was organized at
      Roskilde Festival. “The Living Library is an

      equalities tool that seeks to challenge
      prejudice and discrimination. It works just like a

      normal library: visitors can browse the
      catalogue for the available titles, choose the
      Book they want to read, and borrow it for a

      limited period of time. After reading, they
      return the Book to the library and, if they want,

      they can borrow another. The only difference is
      that in the Living Library, Books are people, and
      reading consists of a conversation” (Roskilde

      Festival Organizers).
