Build a Digital People’s Library

The Occupy Wall Street People’s Library blog is urging other readers to create People’s Libraries in their neighborhoods.

Check it out: “if you’d like to open a branch of the People’s Library in your New York neighborhood, find a [Privately Owned Public Spaces], bring down some books and meet your neighbors. It all starts with a few books in a box.”

We realize that many GalleyCat readers don’t live in New York City and that winter is coming. But we’d love to see more People’s Libraries around the country–so let’s open a few Digital People’s Libraries. What free eBooks do you want to share with your neighbors?

Explore free eBook collections at eBookNewser, Project Gutenberg or the Internet Archive for ideas.

Post your list on your blog, Facebook page, LibraryThing page, Twitter account, Goodreads page or Tumblr blog. Share the link and your location in the comments section and we’ll build a directory of Digital People’s Libraries around the country.
