Lockers may be installed for Lincoln Library homeless

Interesting Move By The city of Springfield (IL): The city of Springfield could announce within days a plan for where the Lincoln Library homeless people can keep their possessions, Mayor Tim Davlin said Tuesday. He said he doesn’t anticipate any changes to security around the library, even if the number of homeless people staying there goes down.

A varying group amounting to dozen or so homeless people frequent the library, sleeping under its overhang at night and leaving their bedrolls and other possessions on planters along the building’s north side during the day.
