Blame Shifts in Seizure of Occupy Wall Street Library

“When the police cleared Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park last November, the movement lost not only its central gathering spot, but also one of its more popular institutions: a collection of 3,600 donated books known as the People’s Library. The fate of the books constitutes one of the enduring riddles accompanying the story of the two-month Occupy encampment of the park, in Lower Manhattan. As the group’s librarians sought to retrieve their property from the city, they were able to recover only about 1,000 books. Some 200 were badly damaged, the librarians said, adding that about 2,400 were not found.”
