Since 2009, the Augustana campus library has offered 17 augustana human library events. At a human library, issues of discrimination and prejudice are explored by students, employees, and community members. These events address topics related to sexual, gender, racial, cultural, and religious diversity. By listening to and conversing with individuals who have experienced oppression first-hand, human library participants gain empathy and understanding. The presenters will provide participants with event-planning tips.
