Human Library: Find out the Rest of the Story

University Libraries at Utah State University hosts a “Human Library” at Merrill-Cazier Library Sept. 23-26. This is the fourth time USU has held the internationally based event.

 

The Human Library offers “living books” to be checked out for conversation. The books are available from noon to 3 p.m. each day during the four-day activity in Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 101. Each human book is unique and has something to share regarding his or her experiences, perspectives, values or beliefs, library organizers said. The Human Library is an innovative approach to dialogue and interaction.

 

Everyone is invited to the library to view the catalog and then check out a human book and learn about different experiences or ways of thinking.

 

Library assistant Angela Neff encourages readers to select books that offer new experiences and viewpoints so that both the book and the reader can learn something new. The session can foster understanding through a shared conversation, she said.

 

The list of titles will be available at the library or the catalog of titles can be found online.

 

Those who would like more information can contact the event coordinators Anne Hedrich (anne.hedrich@usu.edu) or Angela Neff (angela.neff@usu.edu) at University Libraries.

 

Everyone is invited to the Human Library and there is no charge.
