LA Times: Occupy Wall Street Library Books Stored in a NYC Sanitation Garage

UPDATE: State of Seized Library (via Occupy Wall Street Library)
A LOT of material is still missing and some recovered laptops are destroyed.

From the Los Angeles Times:

The books that librarians and other protesters at Occupy Wall Street feared had been thrown out in a police raid on Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning have been located. The books are being stored in a sanitation garage in Manhattan. The mayor’s office tweeted a photograph of the stored books, saying, “Property from #Zuccotti, incl #OWS library, safely stored @ 57th St Sanit Garage; can be picked up Weds.”

The library had more than 5,000 books, which had been catalogued by volunteers. They had been stored in a tent donated by author/rocker Patti Smith.
