WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — People are going to the Purdue Memorial Union today to check out a special kind of "book."
The Human Library is a chance to talk face to face with someone you're curious about.
Readers "check-out" a sit down with a person to search beyond the stereotypical surface.
The "books" range from police officers to immigrants or anyone with unique life circumstances.
Some readers say it's a chance to meet someone they don't usually cross paths with.
"As college people, we're very just about us. We don't really think about other people and how their lives are affecting us or how they're going about it. So, it was interesting to see different viewpoints," said Emma Tisserand.
You can visit the Human Library until 3 p.m. today.
It's located at the Purdue Memorial Union's Ballrooms. It's free and open to the public.
