Library Stair Poem

This stair poem, which soars four floors up through the Rosenberg Library’s atrium is read from bottom to top by thousands of members of the College community everyday. The poem accompanies the Project Survive Exhibition. All thirteen quotes come from testimonials by Peer Educators of Project Survive. Traci Wrycza, Project Survive exhibition designer also designed the stair quotes. The idea for the stair poem was inspired by the Chimurenga Library Project at the San Francisco Public Library and resonates with the Groundswell Stairway Project, created by Leslie Simon.
