Protest Library

There are a lot of positive aspects to what's been going on in Lower Manhattan courtesy of  the Occupy Wall Street movement but there is one part in particular that was unexpected. It is the makeshift library that has sprung up to provide protestors with some reading material.

Quite a few people have been camping out, some since it all began on September 17, so it is great to see that they have the ability to feed their mind while they participate in the occupation.

Titles include Orwell's Animal Farm, a biography of Emma Goldman, Nick Hornby's Housekeeping vs. Dirt, a collection of his bookish pieces from The Believer,  and a copy of Democracy in America by De Tocqueville among many others.
