  • Do you regularly face prejudices, stigmatization or discrimination in your life?

  • Is it okay for you that your book title in the Human Library mentions the prejudice (for example "Homeless", "Gay" or "Autism"?
  • Can you handle difficult questions well?
  • Are you willing to learn new things?
  • Can you listen well to others?
  • Are you willing to take part on a voluntary basis (usually we do have a travel reimbursement available)?
  • Do you have enough time (usually we have a preparation meeting with all books and volunteers and then there is of course the Human Library itself)?
