About Digital Human Library

Digital Human Library is a new kind of library designed for modern learners.

For over 10 years Digital Human Library has been bringing people together to make a difference for kids. Our community-based experiential learning library supports the relevance and reach of community content partners in schools by fostering increased collaboration among districts, schools, students & communities. We also help districts contribute to reconciliation in ways that assist staff and students with understanding, protecting, and honouring Indigenous knowledge, perspectives and worldviews.

dHL enhances the K-12 curriculum by creating the conditions for students to develop transferable skills, critical digital literacies, and cultural competencies as they build meaningful relationships with others.

We help teachers expand and diversify learning by removing the barriers of geographic location and socio-economic status to create an equitable experience of learning for all. 

Our experts and digital content are sourced by teachers for teachers in all curriculum subject areas, and can be accessed on any device in any browser – no additional hardware or software required!

Join us and experience the wonder you’ll inspire when you connect your students to new people, places, and ideas from around the world anytime, anywhere.
