Little Free Library’s bookcase is stolen

By Sara Bloomberg

A little neighborhood gem was stolen this morning. The “Little Free Library” on Noe Street was suddenly missing this morning and the books were scattered around the sidewalk, librarian Jamison Wieser said.

“I was pissed,” Wieser said and shook his head, recalling the moment when he realized the bookcase had been stolen.

Chalk outlines indicate where he found the carnage.

The bookcase has been replaced and filled with books for lending and borrowing but the words, “Please return the Little Free Library,” still peek out in chalk letters underneath it.

A sign on the new library reads, “These books may be freely borrowed. (Please do not take bookcase).”
