Human Libraries Covid 19 Statement

In line with current guidance, and in the interests of everyone’s wellbeing, we have decided to pause the Human Libraries programme of workshops and events until further notice.

We know that working creatively together can provide comfort, distraction and solidarity, and we are hugely saddened to have to put our programme on hold at a time when people will need to come together more than ever. We plan to share a programme of online activities and resources, and will be working with all of our commissioned artists to find ways to continue reaching out to each other, collaborating, and sharing skills.

If you would like to get in touch please don’t hesitate to contact us through our social media channels or on our email address: If we don’t already have your contact details, please email us at with your preferred contact method to be added to our mailing list, or keep an eye on our social media channels for updates. As many of our participants do not have easy access to the internet, we will also contact people individually via phone or post in the coming weeks, and are working on non-digital ways to stay connected. 

We look forward to meeting in the library again as soon as it’s safe to do so.
