Upcoming Event: Human Library (Session 6)

TheLibraries, is holding its sixth session of the HumanLibrary on 08 December 2016 (Thursday), 1:00pm to 4:00pm at The Learning Commons, Henry Sy Sr. Hall.  

The HumanLibrary is a concept that originally started in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is composed of human books that a "reader" can interact with.Humanbooks are people who are subjected to stereotyping and prejudices. They have volunteered to be public representatives of their respective groups so they could share with others their personal stories to break down 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 everhumanlibraryevent in the Philippines was successfully held here at the DLSU on 14 August 2014. More about these sessions can be read HERE.
