After a lengthy battle with the Leawood City Council, 9 year old Kansas resident Spencer Collins will be able to put his little free library back up in his front yard.


Earlier this May, Collins set up a micro-library in his front lawn as a Mothers Day gift to his mother, and as a gift to his community. A sign on the structure encouraged passers by to take a book, return a book.


Everything was going fine until the city of Leawood claimed they had received complaints about Collins library and ordered him to take it down, sparking a national controversy. Since then, Collins has amassed almost 32,000 supporters on Facebook and the support of bestselling childrens authors.







There are an estimated 15,000 little free libraries in areas across the country, those interested can find the closest one to them by using this map.
