WHAT IS THE HUMAN LIBRARY?

The Human Library® is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. ‘Human Books’ are Fairfield University students, faculty, staff who have volunteered to share their story to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual orientation, class, gender identity, lifestyle choices, disability or other aspects of their life.

The Human Library provides the opportunity for the Fairfield University community to share and understand the experiences of others.
