At “Human Library” Students Check Out People Instead Of Books, What They Learn Is Astounding.

At the “Human Library” on the University of North Texas, students are learning more about humanity than they could from any book.

Instead of picking up the latest text on the human condition, “Human Library” gives students the chance “check out” a human and sit down and learn about their life.

Each “Human Book” challenges a different stereotype – alcoholism, ADHD, bipolar, brain-damaged, homeless and many others – and gives students the chance to spend a day in conversation with people living in the midst of our stereotypes.

“In an environment like this, it becomes much easier to realize that we’re all human beings, trying to make it like everyone else.”
