Volunteer to be a Living Book

Do you have a unique life experience you would like to share or a unique perspective the community would benefit from hearing? Are you a member of a group often stereotyped, or misunderstood? Would you like to be a part of this incredible chance for an open dialogue? We are looking for faculty, students, and staff to share their stories and experiences about different cultures, identities, and life experiences. We are looking for Living Books, willing to have conversations with others.

During the Living Library event, to be held on March 18th from 3-6 pm in the Library, you can “check out” Living Books for 20-30 minutes at a time for one-on-one conversations during which you can ask questions and learn from their experiences. This is a dialogue from which everyone can benefit. You can check-out any Living Books which you might like to hear from either on the spot during the event or reserve a check-out period in advance!

To apply to be a Living Book please fill out and submit the Google form by February 29th.
