USU Libraries is hosting a “Human Library” event this Wednesday (Feb 27) from 10-2 in LIB 101.  A colleague suggested me for this Human Library, which is titled “Spiritual Pathways.”  The idea is that you can come and check out a “human book” and, I assume, ask them questions and have a conversation.  I honestly don’t know what to expect, but it seems like a good thing to provide people with the occasion to ask questions of another person.  It will be interesting.  One, in a sense, “enters the mind” of another person when you read their book.  How will that experience differ when you check out a human book?

Check out this link to see the human books in the catalogue for the Wednesday event.
