Human Library® at Lehman College: Tips for Books

The Human Library brings together the Lehman College Community to enhance experiences of diversity and inclusion. Students share their own stories of inspiration and resilience to break down barriers of stigma, bias, and misunderstanding.

Human Book - Orientation

A Human Book is a person who has volunteered to challenge prejudice through respectful conversation with members of the public who "borrow" them to hear their stories. They will have a title that relates to their experience of prejudice and/or discrimination.

Note: When a question is too personal or private, you can say, "That chapter hasn't been written/published yet, but I'd like to hear your next question."


Orientation: Human Book volunteers are invited to attend an orientation to gauge your interest and learn more about the Human Library®. Please stop by at your convenience: anytime between 12pm-3pm, on October 4, 2018, at the Library Room 218.
