In its continuous effort to reduce prejudices, eradicate stereotypes and promote understanding and dialogue, The Libraries held its 13th session of Human Library last 8 August 2018 at the 6F, Henry Sy, Sr. Hall. In line with the idea of book renewal in a typical library setting, HL13 has “renewed” some featured human books from HL12@BGC and brought them all the way from BGC Campus to Manila Campus. 



Similar with the HL12@BGC, Manila campus readers were also entertained with six (6) human books: (1) Bagong Buhay, by Mr. Danilo Alcantara (ex-convict); (2) Power of Love and Faith, by Mrs. Teresita Adefin (ex-convict); (3) Tatak Rehas, by Mr. Pedrito Gozo (ex-convict); (4) A Journey to Self-Discovery, by Mr. John Phillip Binondo (mixed ethnicity), (5) Poverty, Facebook, and How to Help a Street Kid, by Mr. Edwin Nombre Pamanian (illegal settler); and (6) Dyosa, by Ms. Rosemarie Olan (PWD). The activity was graced by a total of 109 readers.
