Free Little Library In Leawood, Kansas Prevails Over NIMBYs

Chalk up a win however brief against the NIMBY trend
Spencer Collins can keep his little free library with books to lend
The nine year old went to Leawood’s City Council to address
A plea to change the code that his little library would repress
Literacy and to promote reading are really worthy aims
Any drop in property values on a little library the NIMBYs cannot blame
But Spencer Collins is not out of the NIMBY woods just yet
City Council action was till October and NIMBYs are eager to his little library beset
Let’s hope that reason and sanity in Leawood will finally prevail
And the myth of falling property values due to a little library will fail.
