Human Libraries are “designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue” ( On October 5th, 2016, Franklin & Marshall College hosted a Human Library in conjunction with F&M’s Day of Dialogue. The mission of Day of Dialogue is to create a space and time in which members of the F&M community could come together to explore and reinvent our community. Students, faculty, and staff volunteered to be the “books” in order to share their unique story with other members of the campus community who participated in the event as readers. It was our hope that by having a dialogue with a book, readers could challenge their own personal perceptions and further their sense of belonging within the F&M community. Learn about the planning, execution, and feedback received for this event.
