Occupy library

Housed in a green military tent, the library at the Occupy Boston encampment in Dewey Square is overflowing with books without due dates. (Cheers Joe in Oz)

The growing collection includes more than 500 books sorted by genre – eg consumerism, gender, activism – and overseen by librarians supporting the movement, including some from the Boston Radical Reference Collective. The library has a simple checkout system, an expanding archive of Occupy Boston’s meeting notes and proposals and a nascent program of speakers and writing workshops.
