LINCOLN, Neb. — Apparently, city officials here haven’t paid much attention to the headlines across the border in Kansas, where a boy wanted to save his Little Free Library from the clutches of a city hell-bent on enforcing zoning codes.
Lincoln city officials have notified a church it must move the little library it erected about two weeks near the curb on its front lawn.
This comes right on the heels of a public relations nightmare for the city of Leawood, Kan., which found itself in the national spotlight — and not the kind you want to be in — after it tried to force a 9-year-old boy to move his Little Free Library from the curb. The boy built the little library with his grandpa for Mother’s Day, no less.
