SU Libraries Living Library 2019
The Syracuse University Libraries hosted a Living Library event on Tuesday, April 2, in Bird Library. The event was held in partnership with the Blackstone LaunchPad at Syracuse University, the Center for Learning and Student Success (CLASS), Disability Cultural Center, Hendricks Chapel, LGBT Resource Center, the Library and Information Science Student Association (LISSA) at the School of Information Studies, the Office of Learning Communities, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs, and the Slutzker Center for International Services.

Based on previous popular Human Library events, the Living Library is an event that encourages people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other in a safe and supportive environment. Living books—SU faculty, staff, and students from a variety of campus departments and programs as well as others from the local community—engaged in one-on-one and small group conversations on a variety of topics, including immigration, Zen practice, surviving abuse, cancer, and therapy dogs.
