Human Library

Welcome to the Human Library at the University Libraries 2020

The Human Library is an event aiming to create dialogue and deeper understanding in the Aggie community. Students, Staff, Faculty and Community Members volunteer as Human Books representing individuals who have experienced discrimination based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability, and any other aspect of their life that has been seen through biases.

At the Human Library event, “Readers” will have the opportunity to check out a Human Book - meaning the two persons, Book and Reader, will have a 30-minute, one-on-one conversation to learn more about the Book's individual experiences. The Human Library 2020 provides the opportunity for the Aggie community to have unique conversations to understand the experiences of others in their community.
