Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus is hosting The Human Library Project on Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Shreve Hall.

Some books that will be available are Borderline Personality Disorder, Homeless Addict to Dean's List Mom, Transsexual Nonbinary Man, Atheist-Humanist, Disabled but Not Unable, and Naturalized Citizen. Other available books will be Wheelie Woman, Anxiety/Depression, Transgender Man, Transgender Woman, Parents of Foster and Adopted Children, Amputee, Queer Man Living with HIV and Substance Abuse Disorder, and Cancer Conqueror.

The Human Library Project is a worldwide movement, intended to challenge stereotypes and promote understanding through civil and open dialogue. Background information about the Human Library Project can be found online at humanlibrary.org.
