The Books in the Living Library are people representing groups frequently confronted with prejudices and stereotypes, and who are often victims of discrimination or social exclusion. In this library, Books cannot only speak, but they are able to reply to the readers’ questions, and the Books can even ask questions and learn themselves. The Living Library methodology is part of the Council of Europe’s youth programme on human rights education.
