Library Events & Outreach

Human Library

Human Library is BACK!

Back by popular demand! The Skyline College Learning Commons is excited to present our 3rd annual series of Human Library events. At these interactive sessions, “human books” — in the form of Skyline College students, faculty and staff — are “loaned out” to readers just as libraries loan physical books to library patrons. Each reader selects or “check outs” a human book and the two engage in meaningful one-on-one conversations in the comfort of the Library for about 15 to 30 minutes. 

The inspiration for this now international movement began in Denmark almost 20 years ago. Skyline College Library has adapted the program to run throughout the academic year instead of only once annually.
