A concerned citizen reports:
Unaccompanied trash and luggage next to Boston Public Library Copley. If this were just a backpack police would swarm it.
I'm willing to bet that those items are actually the belongings of some homeless people who are using the library. While I appreciate the security concerns, it's probably best that this material is left outside.
You are correct. And it shifts between there and the Boylston side of Trinity Church across the street from Finagle A Bagel.
I suspect this is all from one woman who sleeps out in the area. Her train of carts has been getting longer and longer over the last several weeks. Who knows what she's accumulating.
The one you often find by the Phillips Brooks statue taking up a couple of benches with her collection?
This is the "property" of a women who the Trinity Church lets sleep in their doorway of Claredon St. she wheels it out every morning and repeats day after day.
That's her. She's added to her collection.
How does she move all those carts? Are they chained or tied together and she plays locomotive? I've never actually seen her doing anything but sit surrounded by her bags and carts, but I don't spend a lot of time in Copley Square.
She moves them cart by cart. It's not like anyone really wants to rifle through her stuff.
Would this be allowed on the curb near South Station? Logan? the State House?
What if she added some blinking electronics?
Should the Public Library Department of the City of Boston have an on site social worker?... like a few other city public libraries around North America.
needs a Pod for her stuff.
Their duties have been overlapping ever since deinstitutionalization tossed lots of homeless into their turf.
Library adds social worker to assist homeless
I'd say 'most.'
