The 6th human library will be held September 25, 26 & 27. Visit the website for details and a schedule of human books available.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go through the loss of a limb in war? To be a female firefighter? Can you imagine life as a transgendered person? Or how about living with memories of childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism or physical and cognitive challenges? These were just a few of the topics available in recent augustana human libraries.

A Human Library is an initiative in which people called ‘Readers’ who want to learn about a specific topic ‘check out’ people called ‘Human Books’ for an hour of conversation.

The augustana human library is an initiative of Augustana’s Human Rights Advisors and the Augustana Library.
