A Library of People


Books can teach readers quite a lot, but sometimes talking to expert might be easier. That’s why Ronni Abergel created a library of people, where users can borrow humans instead of books. The idea was launched in Denmark back in 2000. Since then, the concept has spread around the world to include more than 70 countries.
