Library Events & Outreach

Welcome to Skyline College Library

Social justice, open access, community, equity, and diversity are among our core values at Skyline College.

Through events and activities, Skyline College Library creates opportunities to deepen students’ understanding of social justice issues and expose students to diverse perspectives. Our programs aim to stimulate creativity and allow students to feel connected to our College’s mission and values.
