Human Library

The Human Library Virtual Event


Interested in breaking down stereotypes?  The NVCC Human Library is looking for students, faculty, and staff to serve as readers.

Have a story to tell? Submit an application to be a Book.

Register to be a Reader! This Wednesday, April 28th, reserve a 20 minute session to have a discussion via Teams with one of our human books!

The purpose of the event is to bring people together during a time of unprecedented widespread loneliness and isolation, and have students, faculty, and staff of NVCC learn from each other through sharing unique backgrounds, experiences, and challenges. We hope to promote acceptance and understanding and invite our community to practice empathy as they hear from their peers who have faced prejudice and stereotypes and overcome hardships.


Books available to check out:


What is the Human Library? Unjudge someoneAt the Human Library books are people and reading is a conversation.  This creates an exciting opportunity for our community to connect one-on-one with each other to share unique sets of life experiences, stories, and knowledge in order to promote values of tolerance and understanding.  Human Books will be checked out by Readers for conversations to celebrate our differences, break down barriers, encourage new ideas, and strengthen our community.  Books are people from all walks of life who have a story to share about any aspect of their identity and experiences.
