The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests are still going strong in lower Manhattan, where a group of activists have established a good collection of books amid the commotion. Called the Occupy Wall Street Library, the collection has more than 500 titles so far.
Books range from the political (Keith Olbermann's Pitchforks and Torches; John Burnheim's Is Democracy Possible?) to classic works of fiction (Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility; Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist). The collection is growing all the time, thanks to donations, which can be sent here:
Occupy Wall Street Library
c/o UPS Store
118A Fulton Street, #205
New York, NY 10038
Since the books and other library materials are on display outdoors, donations of waterproof containers and tarps are also welcome.
If you're curious as to what else makes up the OWS Library but can't make it down to Wall Street, you're in luck! The organizers of the library have set up an online catalog of the collection. The Occupy Wall Street Library's catalog can be viewed HERE.
