Welcoming Conversations: The Human Library Experience at SNHU


Our presentation will examine the evolution of Shapiro’s Human Library at Southern New Hampshire University over two semesters. Promoted as a way to “create community through conversation,” our Human Library helped foster a climate of understanding and respect on campus. As part of the university community, our Human Library aims to provide a safe space for honest dialogue where participants learn from one another. We will discuss campus outreach, gaining institutional & administrative support, and successful promotion of our event. Finally, we will evaluate our successes and challenges while highlighting ways Human Libraries can be implemented at other libraries.
