Copenhagen's Living Library Teaching Danes to Not Judge A Book By Its Cover

A Danish initiative to discourage prejudice has had a global impact. The Living Library, in Copenhagen, allows "readers" to borrow "human books." Among the titles at the biggest such library to date: tales of an ex-stripper, a refugee who lived in a shipping container and a policeman working the city's roughest beat.

Founded in Copenhangen, the Living Library project has taken root in places all over the world. It encourages face-to-face dialogue to help dispel racial and other prejudices.
