Launceston Human Library

We're on the lookout for Launnie locals with a story to share; those who actively defy a stereotype, challenge a narrative or have raw and unfiltered life experiences to talk about.


The Human Library is a global initiative focused on sharing stories of community members, raw and unfiltered. You'll find the library speaking at events, schools, community groups and businesses; challenging stereotypes, and encouraging minds to un-judge.

Set in a comfortable space for dialogue and interaction, people are given the opportunity to speak informally with a 'Human Book' who tells a story about their experience. A 'reader' can then enter the story by asking questions or discussing their own experiences.
