Last Night for Occupied Lamont Library!

Lamont Café has been continuously Occupied since Sunday.

Tonight is our last night.

Come join us for the final 30 hours of events!

At a time when the University is restructuring the library, we are working to change what a library is understood to be. The New Harvard Library Working Group of Occupy Harvard has opened a persistent community space for critical thought, engaged learning, and insistent action in the Lamont Library Café.

We invite everyone to come join us for the final night of the Lamont Library Occupation! Bring warm clothes if you intend to join the sleepover (remember:  “sleeping apparatus” not permitted). We’ll have snacks, ear plugs and plenty of solidarity to go around!

All are welcome!

Thursday/Friday Schedule – New Harvard Library Occupation

Note the Special Event tomorrow: 4-7pm Occupy Donors Phone-A-Thon!  We’ll be hosting a phone and email bank to contact Harvard’s generous donors and alums. We’ll be telling them that we don’t know where their money is going, but we do know that it sure isn’t being spent on ensuring that Harvard’s library system remains the best in the world!

    Dear Occupy Harvard,

    With all due respect, any other group holding a ‘think tank’ would do it in the Lamont Forum Room or elsewhere in the many available spaces for group conversation and study. The Lamont Cafe is not meant for large group meetings, and Occupy is being really inconsiderate by camping there for days at a time.
