Kansas Community Bans Little, Free Libraries

KSAL StaffJune 25, 2014

A widespread trend of sharing books through small homemade structures has been shut down in a Kansas City suburb.

However, Leawood officials say they will reconsider the decision to tell a 9-year-old boy to remove his “Little Free Library” from his family’s front yard.

Spencer Collins and his family erected a little blue box on red stilts on Mother’s Day, asking people to read and share books for free. The small libraries are springing up around the world.

Leawood officials said the family had to take the library down because it violates a city ordinance. The city said Collins’ neighbors complained about the library.

The Collins family will ask the Leawood City Council next month to reconsider the ordinance.
