5th Anniversary of the Human Library at The Learning Commons

The Libraries will be commemorating the 5th Anniversary of the Human Library on 14 August 2019 at The Learning Commons, Henry Sy Sr. Hall. 

 

What is a Human Library?

The Human Library is a concept that originally started in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is composed of human books that a "reader" can interact with. Human books are people who are subjected to stereotyping and prejudices. They have volunteered to be public representatives of their respective groups so they could share with others their personal stories to break down stereotypes and prejudices. As part of the Libraries' aim to cultivate an image of sensible and sensitive community of Lasallians towards social issues, this activity is an alternative way of learning, which may promote dialogue, reduce prejudice and encourage understanding of people from different walks of life. 

 

The first ever human library event in the Philippines was successfully held at DLSU on 14 August 2014. More about the previous sessions can be read HERE.
