The local argument is that the locals of Leawood are paying very high taxes to live there in the expensive suburb knowing full well the city has a ton of codes and ordinances like a Homeowners Association. Their tax money built a 5 million dollar libary and that is where many believe the books belong.

Re: Kansas Boy Forced to Remove Little Free Library From His Yard
Spencer Collins, 9, loves to read. The idea of sharing his love of books with his neighbors thrills him. So with the help of his parents, he set up a Little Free Library in their yard in Leawood, Kansas.

But the town of Leawood decided the birdhouse-sized library was an illegal structure and the family was ordered to remove it.

The family moved the Little Free Library into their garage. But they are looking to take the issue with City Hall, reported ABC affiliate KMBC.

The little library, which was made by the boy’s grandfather, was capable of holding a few books. Like the Little Free Libraries across the country, it had a “take a book, leave a book” note taped on its door. The bookshelf sat next to a bench on the family's front yard, which was intended to provide a spot for readers to enjoy their books.

"When we got home from vacation, there was a letter from the city of Leawood saying that it was in code violation and it needed to be down by the 19th or we would receive a citation," Spencer's mother, Sarah Collins told KMBC.

The City of Leawood bans buildings that aren't attached to homes. Since the library was a free standing structure in the family's front yard, it was considered illegal. The city has received two complaints regarding the library, according to Richard Coleman, Leawood's director of community development.

That is such a sad story. Just reminds me of all the stories about kids with lemonaide stands that get shut down.

What is wrong with people these days?

"The city received two complaints."

Neighbors can get on my damn nerves.

Looking at it, real close, the town of Leawood should reconsider the fact that this is not a "Structure". It rival a cardboard box since it has NO FRAMEWORK! These idiots and their dumb-ass rules.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 59662400


To your point...
They allow "play structures" if you saw this "library" it's about 2'x3'x1' deep. It's attached to what looks like what used to be a bar stool.

The whole thing stands about 4 and a half feet tall.

It's tiny.


One of the council members lives down the street from me. I'm about to call code enforcement and have her take down her basketball goal.

VERY GOOD POINT.

Too many people forget that------we are NOT a democracy (per Pericles's Greece, which ended up sentencing Socrates to death on the basis of majority votes) but CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC based on the Roman system.


It was idiotic Woodrow Wilson who turned the idea of America being a "democracy" when he turned America going into WW1 as a "fight for democracy."


Again.


VERY GOOD POINT.
