Significant increase in Human Libraries in the US
The last month the Human Library was endowed with some very positive press exposure which has helped spread the idea to many new corners of the world and especially in the United States.
Slowly and gradually more and more local institutions have become interested to try this out for size and many have decided to stick around and return to the Human Library on an annual or semi-annual basis.
We appreciate all the positive interest and welcome some of the many new partners that have joined us, since we got a positive mention by Upworty and Collective Evolution in February and on Now This in March.
