L.A. law targets homeless at libraries

twistedlibrarian writes “Hoping to keep homeless encampments from forming outside the city’s public libraries, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to restrict the hours that the public may sit or sleep on library property.

On a 10-0 vote, the council called for an ordinance prohibiting the public from loitering outside libraries between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. — part of a larger effort to address the homeless at branch libraries in San Pedro, Wilmington, Venice and other locations.
