The right to assemble books!


As you may know, citizens of cities across the country, including Portland, are occupying the streets in demonstrations sparked by the Occupy Wall Street movement. No matter where you stand in your beliefs, you gotta admit it's impressive to see democracy in action. The organizers of these protests have created libraries that are busy social and educational centers in their make-shift communities. The website of the Occupy Wall Street library provides a fascinating look into what it takes to protect and organize books in the great outdoors.

Hey, you have a voice, even if you're not old enough to vote. We have lots of suggestions of books and other resources you can use to get organized and be heard. Stop by the library to learn more!
