Human Library This Wednesday! Be part of the solution!

Help break down stereotypes and connect with people in your own Fairfield University community.

Join us in conversation at our  Human Library event at DiMenna-Nyselius Library on Wednesday, Nov. 8th.  Drop in during either of the two sessions :  from 1-4:30 pm and 6-8:30pm.

What is the Human Library?

A Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Students, faculty and staff have volunteered as human ‘books’. Participants in the event can ‘read’ the book- meaning they would have a one on one conversation with the volunteer and share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience. ‘Books’ are students, staff and faculty from all walks of life who have been stereotyped and/or want to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability and other aspects of their life. The Human Library provides the opportunity for the Fairfield community to share and understand the experiences of others in our community.
