The "Pop-Up" Library: A Mini-Movement of Knowledge
Margaret, an unemployed librarian, and Adam, an architect looking for work, decided to create the "pop-up" library. The idea is simple. Gather as many donated books as possible (they got their original books from the Occupy Wall Street library), collect furniture from the street to paint in nice bright colors, get mugs of coffee and put it all out in urban locations throughout the community. They had carefully selected areas of the community that looked as though they could benefit from some brightening up ... not only with paint and bright colors but also with knowledge. There you have the "pop-up" library.
