Plans are in the works for next year’s Human Library! We will again be partnering with the University of South Dakota’s I.D. Weeks Library to put this on, and have started looking for volunteers to become books! The event will be in March of 2019 and will take place on the USD campus.
The Human Library™ is an event designed to engage participants in one-to-one conversations and learn from the experiences of others. Books typically represent a group in a community that has been exposed to stigma, stereotyping, or prejudices. These are typically based on one of the following: Occupation, ethnicity, health, lifestyle, religion, social status, gender/sexuality, ideology, or people with disabilities. Other book topics can include heavy taboo subjects, such as victims of domestic violence, incest, sexual abuse, or parents that lost a child and other grief topics.
