Human Library

Join us for our 4th Annual Human Library!

The Human Library features “Human Books” – representatives of traditionally misunderstood or stigmatized groups – who are available for “check out” by Library visitors.

Human Books and Volunteers Wanted for the Human Library!

Be a part of a “Living Library!”

UNT Libraries are looking for “Human Books” to challenge stereotypes through respectful conversation with others, and volunteers to help coordinate our annual Human Library event.

Your book title will relate to your experience of discrimination, based on presumptions of the general public (i.e. Young Single Parent, Refugee, Sikh, ADHD, etc.). We want to visually tell the world “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and help people better understand those they share their communities with.
