From May 8th-May 15th, it’s Library Amnesty Week! (Overdue fines for materials that have not already been billed will be forgiven. See the Circulation Desk for more details & don’t forget to return your materials before the semester ends!)
We invite you to join us at the Human Library taking place in the Burritt Library (2nd floor) on April 3rd & 4th.
The Human Library is an event that encourages people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other. The attendees, or “readers,” will join in a small group or one-on-one conversation with human “books” who have volunteered to share their unique stories. For more about being a human book reader, see: http://libguides.ccsu.edu/c.php?g=914868&p=6591484
You can meet with human books for up to 20 – 30 mins. at a time per session in order to have a conversation and ask questions about the “book’s” topic. There is no actual reading or presenting of real print books.
The library is a safe place to have some positive conversations to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, learn about a career, or just to get to know another individual. For more information, goto:http://libguides.ccsu.edu/ccsuhumanlibrary or contact Susan Slaga-Metivier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Library Schedule (There will be approximately 10-12 Human books per time slot.)
