Human LibraryThe Human Library returns for its fifth year! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 2, 3:00-5:00pm for this popular virtual event hosted by Skyline College Library. The Human Library provides a chance to meet people from different backgrounds and learn about their experiences – particularly people who have felt the sting of prejudice, stigma, and marginalization.

At the Human Library, any member of our Skyline College community can enjoy a virtual conversation with a “human book,” usually a member of our community. It’s an opportunity to ask questions about their lives and the stories they have chosen to share, and receive honest answers in return.

Interested in sharing your story as a human book? Please fill out a participation interest form now:

Interested in being a reader? Beginning October 25, you’ll be able to sign up for one or two 25 min. courageous conversations.

Everything you need to know is here,, including all of our

previous books described in the Human Book Archive.

Faculty are encouraged to provide credit for student participation.  Questions? Please contact Pia Walawalkar, Equity & Outreach Librarian <>
