Baton Rouge’s Human Library

The East Baton Rouge Parish Library is holding a Human Library event in April as part of the Arts Council’s Ebb and Flow Festival, and again in May at the Main Library on Goodwood. The Human Library is a program in which readers can check out Living Books – people who share the story of their lives, in a fascinating and thought-provoking one-on-one conversation. Everyone has a story; what is yours?


We are now accepting applications for Living Books. If you are part of a group which is frequently misunderstood or marginalized, or if you feel qualified to represent any of the following life experiences, you may be an excellent candidate!

  • Minority ethnicity
  • Life with a physical or mental disability
  • Non-traditional family structure
  • Military or police service
  • Religious background or beliefs
  • Community activist

Please fill out the online application for an opportunity to make your voice heard. We will respond to all applicants by email.

For more information, contact Ned Denby at 225-231-3750.
