UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES ANNOUNCE SECOND ANNUAL HUMAN LIBRARY

 

COLLEGE STATION, TX (March 2018) – The Texas A&M University Libraries is proud to present its second annual Human Library, an event where readers can check out Human Books, for 30-minutes at a time, to have a dialogue challenging biases. The Human Library is open to the public and will be on March 6, 2018 from 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm in Evans Library.

Each person who agreed to become a Human Book created a title for themselves related to their experience of presumptions the general public makes when meeting them. We hope these conversations challenge common presumptions and help both books and readers better understand the entire Aggie community.

The Human Library is sponsored by the University Libraries Diversity Advancement Committee and is just one of many events over the course of the semester.

“We are thrilled with the way the Human Library humanizes – literally – the voices of diversity on campus and in our community,” noted David Carlson, Dean University Libraries. “The Human Library is a safe space and is an extension of the diversity of voices sitting on our shelves and in our electronic resources.”

For more information about the Human Library, contact Patrick Zinn, Director of Marketing at pzinn@library.tamu.edu or 979.845.4265.
