The Human Library is an event that provides an inclusive way to challenge prejudice. The Library consists of Human “books” who volunteer to tell stories about themselves to a variety of “readers.” Like a regular library, the Human Library has a catalog of books waiting to be checked out. A reader (person who attends the library) can check out “books” on a topic that he or she may be interested in learning more about.
For example, you can check out various titles, such as “child of a policeman,” “Greek Life member,” “athlete,” “Black Lives Matter supporter,” “transgender,” or “Buddhist” and learn more about that person, their life and the challenges and stereotypes that they have overcome.
Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to apply!
