Boy forced to remove Little Free Library from his yard in Kansas

“The idea of sharing his love of books with his neighbors was thrilling to 9-year-old Spencer Collins. So, with the help of his parents, he set up a Little Free Library in their yard in Leawood, Kansas. City authorities told the family to take it down. Little Free Libraries are a little like a dollhouse full of books: they sit on a pole or wall or fence, have two or three shelves and may include a protective glass door. An encouraging sign is posted — “Take a book, return a book” — prompting people who walk past to take a look and grab something to read. There are more than 10,000 Little Free Libraries set up around the world. Kits can be ordered online; Spencer Collins got one as a gift from his grandfather.” (via Los Angeles Times)
