The Human Library at Johns Hopkins University

Join us in the BLC for a Human Library event!

The Human Library project is a one-day event where instead of checking out real books, "readers," or attendees, can "check out" a person who represents a group or community exposed to stigma, prejudice, and/or discrimination. The point of the Human Library? To share that people are more than just one stereotype, one story. Past titles and conversations have included a Refugee, Gay Pastor, Muslim Convert, Polyamorous, etc., among many others. But, don't judge a book by its cover; instead engage in an enlightening conversation with one from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 30. Sign-up sheet for volunteers (as Books or to help with "check outs") is right here:
