Human Libraries are held throughout the world, often on college campuses, where human “books” and “readers” engage in personal dialogue about their experiences in order to foster understanding, reduce prejudice and celebrate diversity within our communities. The Human Library is exactly like a normal library; readers come and “borrow” a Book for a limited period of time. Books not only speak, but they are able to reply to the readers’ questions and can ask questions themselves.
If you are interested in sharing your story in a small group setting (approximately eight freshmen business students), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Books will attend one brief orientation in February to learn what to expect prior to the March 10 event. More information, including sample book genres, is available at the Warrington website. Photos from a Human Library event at Illinois State University are available here.
