The People’s Library

Christian Zabriskie, founder of Urban Libraries Unite, wrote inspirational article about The People’s Library at Occupy Wall Street in New York City in the October 18th of American Libraries.  Since the onset of the “Occupy Wall Street” protest, the People’s Library has been growing in materials and patrons.  Moreover, people’s libraries have been growing in popularity across the United States.  The People’s Library experiences distinctive and similar problems other libraries face. But despite the problems, the library staff is hard-working and dedicated.  

The entire article can be read at http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/news/10182011/library-occupies-heart-occupy-movement.  In addition to reading the article, you can visit the People’s Library Blog at peopleslibrary.wordpress.org.  After reading the article and blog, search through your books and donate the books you don’t want to the People’s Library. Donate as a supporter of the People’s Library and as an advocate for libraries.
