THE LIVING LIBRARY PROJECT is an event designed to create dialogue, promote understanding and reduce prejudice. A collection of "human books" (widely varied in gender, age, and cultural and religious backgrounds) are offered on "loan" to visitors. Facilitated by Living Library Librarians, visitors "borrow" the human book for up to 30 minutes for an open conversation. We hope to promote tolerance and deepen the understanding of social justice, equity and diversity.

HART HOUSE is a living laboratory of social, artistic, cultural and recreational experiences where all voices, rhythms and traditions converge. As the vibrant home for the education of the mind, body and spirit envisioned by its founders, Hart House encourages and supports activities that provide spaces for awakening the capacity for self-knowledge and self-expression.
