Is the library responsible for kudzu that is invading a neighbor's yard?

Original Question: Sorry to ask what is probably a silly question on a Friday afternoon, but the owner of some property adjacent to the library has called to complain that our kudzu is overtaking her yard. Are we legally responsible for keeping her yard trimmed? Any advice would be most welcome.

"Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the
bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the
book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in

A Hipper Crowd of Shushers

ON a Sunday night last month at Daddy’s, a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, more than a dozen people in their 20s and 30s gathered at a professional soiree, drinking frozen margaritas and nibbling store-bought cookies.
