Lincoln evicts little library from right of way

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The city of Lincoln has evicted a Little Free Library from a spot near a church in the Indian Village neighborhood.

A city official told the church, New Visions Community-Southminster site, that the little library can't sit in a public right of way.

George Finley lives across the street from the little library, and he says he's seen children go to it, grab a book and sit down on nearby grass to start reading.

Public Works Director Miki Esposito says she and neighborhood association president Barbara Arendt have talked about moving the library to private property, but that probably won't be done until after Thursday's deadline. She's also working with Arendt to delay the possible city fine of up to $500.
