In a nice report featured in DIY media paper The Occupied Wall Street Journal
, Jennifer Sacks wrote about the development of the library. She highlights the wide variety of writers and works at the library, representing the diverse politics of the occupation, as well as the importance of sharing ideas:
"Howard Zinn is here. Dominick Dunne and Tom Wolfe, too. Ernest Hemingway and Barbara Ehrenreich and Dr. Who and Beowulf."
"That a lending library would spring up fully operational on day one of an occupation makes sense when you consider that the exchange of ideas is paramount here, at a new crossroads of the world."
