This boy is harshly affected by government regulation from a young age.

* In Kansas, 9-year-old Spencer Collins has been told by authorities that he must stop sharing books with his neighbors, and close the little free library.

* It’s just a bookshelf–in his yard. Its slogan was “take a book, leave a book,” but city government is mostly about the taking from innocent people.

* Collins loves reading. When he tried to share his love for books, it started a surprisingly frustrating adventure. The city bans buildings that aren’t attached to someone’s home.

The family moved the little library to the garage, but Spencer Collins said he plans to take the issue up with City Hall.

### Give ’em hell, kid!
