Sulzer Library- March 14th, 2015

On March 14, 2015, Human Library Chicago held its first event of the year at Sulzer Regional Library. It was a huge success and we’d like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who was part of it. Our books were taken out over 50 times by readers. This event also featured our newly designed photo booth. We asked our readers to participate in the photo booth to underline the idea that everyone is human beyond a label. All of the photographs can be seen here.

Our books at this event included HIV Positive, Biracial, Iranian Feminist, Physical Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Transgender Male, Veteran, and Brain Tumor Survivor.

We would like to thank Sulzer Regional Library and it’s wonderful Librarians who helped make this event possible by providing us with a great space and logistical support. Additionally, we’d like to thank Southside Occupational Academy whose Production Class students screen printed our t-shirts. A huge thanks to Native Foods for providing lunch for all of our volunteers for the event. Finally, we want to thank every person who participated in our event. Without readers like you, events like this would not be possible. We hope that everyone who participated in the event had as much fun as we had putting it together.
