Upcoming Event: Invitation to the Human Library (Session 3)
The Libraries is pleased to invite the community to the third session of the Human Library on 29
September 2015(), 2:00pm to 4:00pm at the European Documentation Centre, The Learning Commons, 13th floor, Henry Sy Sr. Hall.
The human library concept originally started in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Human Library is composed of human books that a "reader"/user can interact with. The human books selected are people who are subjected to stereotyping and prejudices. They have volunteered to be public representatives of their respective groups so as to share to others their personal stories beyond the stereotypes and prejudices. As part of the Libraries' aim to cultivate an image of sensible and sensitive community of Lasallians towards social issues, this activity is an alternative way of learning, which may promote dialogue, reduce prejudice and encourage understanding of people from different walks of life.
The first ever human library event in the country was successfully held at the DLSU last 14 August 2014, followed by the second session last 18 November 2014. The third session focuses on the Filipino-Chinese theme, which carries a set of human books on the young entrepreneur, student athlete, woman business leader, crime prevention advocate, among others.
This activity is in partnership with the Chinese Corner and the De La Salle Alumni Association - CLA Chapter.
