human_libHuman Library will be held in the Forum @ Willis Library September 17 and 18, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm each day. Instead of print or electronic resources, the books in this library will be human beings who have experienced prejudice due to issues such as race, gender, age, disability, ethnic origin, class, sexual preference, gender identity, or lifestyle choices.  Instead of print or electronic resources, the books in this library will be human beings who have experienced prejudice due to issues such as race, gender, age, disability, ethnic origin, class, sexual preference, gender identity, or lifestyle choices.  At the event, in 15 to 30 minute personal conversations with students, members of the UNT community – graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and staff – shared their experiences as Latinos, gays, Muslims, persons with disabilities, police officers, African Americans, vegans and many other groups who are often misunderstood.

Volunteer books do not have to be present for both days of the event. The time commitment would be one or two shifts of three and a half hours, plus a one hour training session a week or two before the event.  For more information, see Human Library Book Recruiting Information.  If you are interested in joining the book collection for the fall Human Library, please email Diane Wahl.
