"NYPD & Brookfield have taken the People's Library again. and we love you all," tweet the Occupy Wall Street librarians of Zuccotti Park. They also took all the energy bars, waters, and snacks at the library. This is not the first time. Then, shortly after: "A few of our awesome librarians holding up new donations just after NYPD and Brookfield workers took our books tonight."

The librarians are restocking, in case you'd like to donate. And for those new to the story, Brookfield is the owner of Zuccotti Park, a central site in the two-month-old global Occupy movement.

"Books are apparently the crosses and garlic of the evil vampire squid," tweets "bookmaker" Kate Black.

"Porn star Sasha Grey reads to children while the NYPD throws books in the trash," says comedian Rob Delaney. "Inhale that, America."

OWS action at NYSE At 7 a.m. tomorrow Occupy Wall Street will attempt to live up to its name. Hundreds of activists will converge upon the Street's most famous address—the New York Stock Exchange—in a coordinated attempt to shut it down. The blockade will be the first protest in a long day of carefully-planned demonstrations to mark what would have been the two-month anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park.
