The OWS library has gone mobile! As you might imagine, I’m charmed and (guardedly) optimistic about this strategy for maintaining the library’s physical presence after its more traditional (if a library in a tent can be called such) location was removed.
But, ten minutes ago, the librarians are reporting that things aren’t going entirely as planned:
12:21: Police deny People’s Mobile Library entry into Liberty, even though Brookfield staff ok’d it.
As before, I’m not entirely surprised. But hopefully, the flexibility and mobility offered by putting the library on wheels can help get around some restrictions and continue to make the library a fascinating part of the protest.
