Kansas City Public Library Leaves Hobos Out In The Cold For Holidays

Anybody with a roof over their head, a phone and some sort of Internets connection doesn't really have to worry about this one. HOWEVER, the library mostly serves as a place for hosting hobos and after earning a recent tax boost, they're rejecting their most avid clientele during a crisis and out of an abundance of caution.

I've never been a fan of how the library has been run. But Covid is running rampant. It won't do the homeless any good to catch it. And closing down during the holidays reinforces the fact getting together for the holidays this year is very dangerous for everyone.

The library should not be a derelict day care. They stink, they take up chairs and study space, and they are loud and unruly. Bus them to a tent city somewhere. Taxpayer-patrons should be more important to the public library than the "homeless."

Libraries weren't built for hobos.

How is hanging out at the library for hours and hours getting these people out of homelessness?

Library needs to mandate a library card for admission. Except that WOULD require an address... Cool. Problem solved.
