The Philosopher’s Library was an idea that began in the Mojave Desert: a small library of philosophy in an abandoned gas station for passing travelers to stop, read, and reflect on their lives. We got excited and imagined opening a fully-functioning philosophy library in New Orleans. This evolved into challenges we did not anticipate and we’ve decided to put the idea on hold.We thank everybody in our neighborhood for their support, critiques, and interest in this idea. We are not seeking non-profit status or pursuing a zoning change at this time. Perhaps this idea will return to the desert.
