People’s Library Reoccupation


After this morning’s eviction of Zuccotti Park, the 5,000 books that encompassed the People’s Library have depressingly ended up in a dumpster. However, writers are planning to restock the People’s Library this evening in Liberty Plaza.

“Authors will bring their books, readers will bring their favorite books to donate and together we will rebuild to create the revolution this country needs,” according to the Library’s blog.

UPDATE: It seems the books have been stored, not tossed. Hope that holds true. (Via Galleycat)
