Every year Belk Library puts on an event during Winter Term called The Human Library Project. It is designed to create understanding and dialogue across people. Individuals volunteer as “Human Books” and attendees “check out the book,” through one-on-one conversations with the Human Books and shared experiences. Human Book volunteers represent diverse walks of life and identities across race, religion, family background, sexual orientation, gender, profession, hobbies, class, disability, skill set, and additional aspects of what it means to be human! Elon students, faculty, and staff are welcome (arrangements can be made to bring entire classes).
This years is Thursday, January 16 : Belk Library, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
