Hyderabad’s Human Library treats humans as books that can be ‘borrowed’ for 30 minutes

Reading a book is an assured method to transport yourself to a different epoch, where you see and learn from the eyes of the author.

But how would you feel if you are conversing directly with the author? Brilliant, we say! If this idea excites you then you must definitely visit this human library in Hyderabad, where you read people instead of books.

A bunch of students in Hyderabad are trying to inculcate the culture of human library in our system and the city is already reveling in its beauty. With an aim to bring about a change in the society, these students are sharing community stories.

A bunch of students in Hyderabad are spearheading the Human Library movement in their city, hoping to bring about a change in society through community stories.

This concept was first seen in Copenhagen in the spring of 2000 as a project for Roskilde Festival by Ronni Abergel and his brother Dany and colleagues Asma Mouna and Christoffer Erichsen.

Today it is estimated that the Human Library has been presented in more than 70 countries around the world, most of them in partnership.

“In India, the first Human Library event was held at Indore (in November 2016 at the IIM Indore campus). Hyderabad is the second city to have this event, and we are getting ready for our next event this April,” says Harshad Fad, one of the organizing members.

During their first event in Hyderabad at Phoenix Arena in Hi-tech City in March, readers were asked to check the catalog and chose what interests them most. Their next event will be held on May 27, 2017
