#OccupyLibraries are spreading

De #Occupy-beweging heeft ook een bibliotheek: A Library Occupies the Heart of the Occupy Movement
"This is one of the purest public libraries out there. It exists to inform and entertain anyone who can access it. Books are donated to the library by supporters, making for an incredible organic collection. It is a circulating library, and one that follows a model a lot of us would envy. Take any book, read it, bring it back when you feel like it. If you don’t bring it back to the People’s Library, then pass it on to someone else. There are no cards, no fees, no RFIDs."

De Occupy WallStreet People's Library telt op dit moment zo'n 3580 titels. Librarything schreef er een mooie blogpost over: Occupy Libraries!
"While you may agree or disagree with the Occupy movement as a whole, we think what they’re doing with books and libraries is simply awesome."
Daar ben ik het helemaal mee eens. Jij ook?
