It’s NATO time!

Resist NATOWe want to welcome all who are in town in solidarity with Occupy Chicago protesting against the NATO summit! Stop by room 501 at our 500 West Cermak location to check out the library.

Our lending policy is: please use the books as you see fit. Read them here, take them home, lend them forward.

We have a community journal where you can leave thoughts, poetry, artwork, etc. Leave us a note!

We also have printed copies of the documents sent in response to the Truthout DHS FOIA request (1st set) and the full text of the “sit down and shut up” ordinances.

You can also subscribe to podcasts by our friends at Political Discontent Radio by scanning the QR code found on any wall in the library. Do it!
