Skyline College Library is excited to present our 6th annual series of Human Library events. Our Fall event will be virtual and take place Thursday, October 20 from 2:00-3:30 p.m.

What’s The Human Library? 

At the Human Library, an interactive zoom session organized by Skyline College Library, “human books” — in the form of Skyline College students, faculty, staff and community members — are “loaned out” to readers just as libraries loan physical books to library patrons. Each reader selects or “checks out” a human book and the two engage in meaningful one-on-one conversations in the comfort of a Zoom breakout room for about 15 to 25 minutes. 

The Human Library presents a learning experience that challenges stigmas and stereotypes through the art of open and honest one-on-one conversations. It is a safe space where strangers can discuss challenging or difficult topics openly and without condemnation.

Students: Would you like to share your story as a human book? Please fill out this interest form today and a staff member will be in touch shortly!
