The Texas A&M University Libraries presented its third annual Human Library Thursday, an event where readers can check out Human Books, for 30-minutes at a time, to have a dialogue challenging biases.

Each person who agreed to become a Human Book created a title for themselves related to their experience of presumptions the general public makes when meeting them.

The Human Library is sponsored by the University Libraries Diversity Advancement Committee and is just one of many events over the course of the semester.
