The Human Library Program

Rogue Community College's Diversity Programming Board would like to invite you to participate in the Human Library event April 23, 2014, 10am to 2pm, at the RCC Redwood Campus Library in Grants Pass.

The Human Library project allows cardholders to borrow a 'human book'– volunteers with varying life experiences—for 30 minutes to hear the "book's" story, ask questions, broaden perspectives and find common ground. The program creates a safe space for both the book and reader to have honest, open dialogue.

Check out some of our “book” titles:

  • Grief- Transforming through loss
  • Radio DJ/political commentator
  • Education saved my life- orphan, to homeless runaway, to the path of life learning.
  • Senior Missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon)
  • Good without god- Christian to agnostic atheist
  • Professional photographer- Empowering human subject through the lens 
  • From Learning Disabilities to Realizing Dreams: The Beauty of a Passionate Life (female fitness trainer and business owner)
  • Secret Keeper- Living Wiccan in a modern world
  • Stay at home dad & graduate student
  • Braillist- Literacy for all
  • "Bee girl"- Bee educator and conservationist
  • Being biracial in a small community

To check out a book:

On April 23rd, RCC students or staff members can go to the RWC library to see which titles are available. Selections are first come, first serve.

If you are an RCC instructor who is interested in bringing a class to the event, contact Cessa Vichi at the RWC Library, by April 22nd, for scheduling.
