Belated news, while there have been street libraries set up by Occupy protestors worldwide (see earlier posts) and librarians have been much in support. The Occupy Melbourne protestors briefly occupied the lawns of the State Library of Victoria until they were evicted according to this story.

Nice to see libraries standing up for property rights.

According to this story the “The Library said it welcomed free speech and would permit daytime protests, but would not tolerate a permanent occupation.”
