The Human Library returns in March!

The Libraries is holding session 8 of the Human Library on 17 March 2017, 1:00pm to 5:00pm at The Learning Commons, Henry Sy Sr. Hall

The Human Library is a concept that originally started in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is composed of human books that a "reader" can interact with. Human books 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 ever human library event in the Philippines was successfully held here at the DLSU on 14 August 2014. More about these sessions can be read HERE. 

This session will cover human books on the following subjects:​  persons from big family, single parents, abused woman, priest, and Muslim teenager. ​

Interested participants are requested to kindly fill out this Online Registration Form to register. Registration ends at 5:00PM on Friday, 10 March 2017.

Lunch 'N Learn Session 2: De-stressing


The Libraries, in partnership with the Office of Personnel Management, held its second session of "Lunch 'N Learn", last February 3, 2017 from 12:00PM to 1:00PM at The Learning Commons, European Documentation Centre, 13F, Henry Sy Sr. Hall, De La Salle University.

Lunch 'N Learn at the Libraries’ program aims to provide a venue for DLSU faculty and staff to take part in meaningful conversations combined with the opportunities to build a network over lunch.




Somewhat similar to the concept of the brown bag session, members of the DLSU community sat together over free and healthy lunch, while Dr. Jowi Cruz, talked about "De-stressing” which was the topic for the second session. Attendees and the discussant engaged in casual discussions where personal experiences where shared. With this activity, new ideas were discovered particularly on how to stay stress-free in dealing with work, family, relationship and life in general.
