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!

Baby library pictures!

Our library is just starting out, but we are proud parents and wanted to share some pictures.

Room 501

When you walk into Room 501, you are greeted by couches, lamps, a coffee table, and this lovely stencil on the wall.  (Yes, we do have dinosaur sheets covering one of our couches.  Be jealous.)

These bookcases were handmade by a member of Occupy Chicago.  We are starting to fill them with books, newspapers, pamphlets, magazines, zines, and more!

Corner cases

On the other side of the room we have some bulk titles, text books, reference, and DVD documentaries.

We’ll have more pictures soon, hopefully featuring many more books!  But for now, we hope you enjoyed a quick glimpse at The People’s Library of Occupy Chicago.  Come visit us!
