Human Library at Adelphi Universities

Why become a Human Library volunteer?

There is not just one good reason, but many good reasons to become part of this global movement and help us publish people through Human Libraries in your community.

Let’s start with the simple stuff. This concept works. The Human Library™ does what it says it will do and what it was designed to do. It helps build an understanding of diversity by providing a framework for real conversations about important issues.

Open and honest conversations can lead to greater acceptance, tolerance, and social cohesion in the community.

Real people in real conversations within a framework setup to help facilitate and accommodate the process.

Because this is an innovative approach to challenging stigma, stereotypes, and prejudices through a non-confrontational and friendly conversation.

To give a voice to groups in the stigmatized community and to help create platforms that support a greater understanding of diversity and social cohesion.

Because you want to volunteer your time to work that is important and has a significant impact on the community and Adelphi University.
