Slowly but surely, a library is born

Progress update:

We formed a Library Committee consisting of about 8 librarians, teachers, booksellers, and other “book people.”  (If you would like to join us, send an email to ochilibrary at gmail and we’ll be happy to add you to our ranks.)  A room has been set aside at Occupy Chicago’s indoor HQ for the library, and shelving is being built to line the walls.  We have about 30 boxes of book donations to process and more in storage, which we will begin cataloging this week.

Exciting!

This blog is still very much under construction, but here are other places you can find us on the web:

Twitter

Facebook

And our catalog, so far, can be viewed here: LibraryThing

Thanks for sticking with us and we hope you stop by again soon!  We promise to post pictures of our beautiful shelves, books, and more.

(As always, donations can be dropped off at 500 W Cermak during GA.  If you can’t make it to our indoor HQ, email ochilibrary at gmail and we can try to arrange a pickup.)
