Library tour

We got a great response from the first few pictures we posted last week – thanks for sharing the link!  Here’s a bit more of a tour.  We’re still gathering momentum, but considering our library was just a twinkle in our eyes two weeks ago, we’re happy with how its progressing.

Our world-famous dinosaur couch. We also have end tables and lamps! So fancy.

In the front room of 501, we have a table for Occupy newspapers, flyers, and more.

Our non-fiction section doubled in 3 days. At this rate, we're going to need more shelving built ASAP!

We have a communication board with information about the library, a whiteboard to leave us messages, and a Community Journal for collecting thoughts and ideas.

Bulk and oversize titles. Hopefully this case will soon include our Reference materials - dictionaries and more!

We now have fancy bins for donations. And they are always full. Let's get cataloging!

    good to see the library up and running…keep her going…up North and on the wet coast Van City doesn’t have the history you do…keep us informed and catalog those books…we got a nice picture of an old Chicago activist kissing a beautiful woman…in books we trust

    • Thanks for stopping by! We’ll do our best to document the process of setting up and running an Occupy library. We also love seeing what all the other libraries have already accomplished. It’s nice to find ourselves in such excellent company.
