The Human Library at Illinois State University needs volunteers to help connect “Books” and attendees.

A Book is a person who volunteered to challenge prejudice and social exclusion through respectful conversation. Volunteers will help with check-in and other duties that allow students to meet with Books.

Volunteers can sign up here.

The Human Library at Illinois State began in 2014, with around 500 first-year students meeting with Books. The Human Library on September is available only to students enrolled in Success 101, LinC, and Transfer Student Seminar courses who will be the Readers of our Book volunteers. Ninety-eight percent of students who have participated in the Human Library would recommend the experience to another student.
