The Randall Library Diversity Committee is hosting a Human Library on April 9th from 1-4 pm. The event will be held in the library on the first floor adjacent to PCJ. What is a human library?: The Human Library Project was started in Copenhagen in 2000 in an effort to “build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue.” It is, in fact, exactly what it sounds like—a library of people with diverse backgrounds, identities, and experiences, all of whom have volunteered to have a frank and open conversation with anyone who comes to “check out” their book. Libraries throughout the world have had great success hosting their own Human Libraries since then, including Wake Forest University and ECU, which has been running a very popular Human Library event for the last five years. How will this work?: Volunteer “Books” will be asked to come up with a “title” that names the identity they feel willing to talk about during the event, and will also participate in a training and orientation session prior to the day itself. During the event, readers will sign up to “check out” individual “Books” for set periods of time. Books can refuse to answer any question they do not feel comfortable with or end the conversation. (And, of course, there will be refreshments!)

Mark your calendar for an International Students Library Workshop at Randall on April 5 @ 3pm. Register here: lib.uncw.edu/intlworkshop
Veganism? Perhaps, some of you are wondering why this topic. This topic was chosen because Randall Library partnered with the Vegan Club to create an opportunity for student clubs to promote their club’s mission and message through book displays and outreach opportunities within our library. Our goal is to be more student-focused and student driven. This collaboration focuses on using library resources, paired with the library’s collection, to promote the message of student clubs while using library resources to back up their message. Stop by and check out all the hard work, time, and decision making our students committed to making this display possible. If your club is interested in collaborating with Randall Library next semester please contact Outreach and Engagement Librarian Chris Robinson @
for more information. Currently, seeking to highlight two clubs for next semester. Will your club be next?
