Since this morning’s raid of Zuccotti Park, where the Occupy Wall Street movement began, there have been questions about the state of the movement’s 5,000+ book library, one of the biggest cultural symbols of OWS.

Now, the New York Mayor’s Office has tweeted an image of the library safely stored in a warehouse on 57th Street in Manhattan:

According to Gothamist:

And earlier today the library’s blog had updated saying tonight at 6 p.m., “writers and readers from across New York City will gather in Liberty Plaza to reoccupy the space and rebuild the People’s Library.”
