This think piece examines the benefits of living libraries and how their implementation carries the potential to enhance concepts pertaining to social justice from both a local and global perspective. A living library, in its most rudimentary form, provides an opportunity for a patron to have a conversation with another human being based on that person’s life experience. In this context, the person relating their life experience is considered a living book. Living libraries have the ability to become a reference service that provides multiple viewpoints on complex issues. They benefit the user by offering both an intellectual and emotional experience. In practice, the living library can enhance an understanding of various worldviews by disparaging stereotypes and engaging community conversations that give rise to an awareness of human dignity.
