Writers to Rebuild the Occupy Wall Street Library

Last night the NYPD loaded 5,554 books from the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) People’s Library into dump trucks as they evicted the New York City camp. Tonight a group of ReOccupy Writers supporters will bring books back to the former OWS library site.

No matter where you live, you can build your own Digital People’s Library, sharing books with your online 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 in the comments section and we’ll add you to the list.
