TCU's Human Library

Housing & Residence Life is happy to announce that TCU’s Human Library is back for a second time. We previously did this event in January of 2017 and it was a bigger success than we could have thought for a first-time event. We are looking to grow the event in participation and recognition. We are looking for faculty, staff, students and/or alumni to volunteer as books for at least a one hour period to speak on a topic of their choosing. Thank you for all those who have already volunteered to participate, please help us spread the word.

What is a Human Library?
A Human Library is an event that encourages people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other in a safe environment. The purpose of the event is to promote tolerance, challenge assumptions, and celebrate diversity within our community.

What is a Human Book?
Human books are people who volunteer to share stories about their experiences or backgrounds. During this event, you can “check out” a human book for 20 minutes at a time to have a conversation, either one-on-one or in a small group. Last year’s catalog can be found as an attachment to view examples of books.

Want to Participate?
We are currently looking for faculty, staff or students to serve as human books. Do you have a story to tell or know someone who would make a great book? Send us your recommendation via our Human Book Suggestion Form by January 4th .
