MAY 19 & 20, 2019: Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Company, Indianapolis, IN. We're just so proud our little Human Library book depot! Several of our beautiful books will be in Indianapolis for further training, and to help educate and sensitize corporate staff at Eli Lilly to diversity and inclusion, an event planned in collaboration with Ronni Abergel, Founder of the Human Library Organization in Denmark. We're thrilled that our beautiful books will be welcomed and championed as the rockstars and generous ambassadors they are. We can't wait for them to come home and teach us everything they learn!

Human Library at 'Celebration of Lights' in Batavia!  

City Council Chambers, 100 N Island Ave

Make a bookmark, make a self-portrait, shine on with the Human Library of the Fox Valley at the Celebration of Lights! "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine!" Enjoy 1:1 chats with our other human 'books,' generous volunteers from traditionally marginalized groups, and learn about lives you may not yet understand. Come 'unjudge' someone, and please, return our beautiful books in the same condition in which they're loaned. #donotdogearourbeautifulbooks
