Each of these books volunteer to take part in the library and share their story. Like a regular library, the Human Library has a book jacket and description, and a “reader” can check out “books” on a topic that he/she/they may be interested in learning more about. For example, readers could learn about the experiences of MCC’s international students and faculty; individuals with disabilities; LGBTQIA people; and individuals who practice a particular religious faith.
