Tristan Kenyon Schultz's answer Your reading of the ADA is correct and based on your facts the library is wrong. While it is possible to file a lawsuit for violation of the ADA, I would not recommend this approach at this point. Maybe try sending a letter to the director stating the rule and requesting a discussion of this matter. You can contact a lawyer who can also send a letter which may carry more wright (letterhead of a law firm tends to make people jumpy...).

Andy Chen's answer You don't have to have a lawyer, but it will help tremendously. The papers for a lawsuit have to meet specific criteria. Most non-lawyers won't be able to do it and will have their case dismissed almost immediately. Non-lawyers I've seen who file their own suits have all done a ton (e.g. weeks and weeks) of research on their own first.
Keith Petrochko's answer This wouldn't be a civil rights issue. I dont see anything worth the time and expense of a legal action in this situation. I wish I could offer more, but the best I have is that I would recommend frequenting a different store.
Robert L. Mauger Jr.'s answer It sounds like there's a good chance that the landlord gave you the wrong notice, ordinarily a space rent contract can't be terminated with less than 180 days notice, if at all. If you can't resolve things with your property manager, talk to your own attorney before the notice period ends and your landlord begins the eviction proceedings to review your case.
Tristan Kenyon Schultz's answer Privacy law in the US is very, very weak. Generally, a photo can be published unless it is lewd, prevented by law, protected under intellectual property laws or taken in a place of reasonable expectation of privacy. The definition of "reasonable expectation of privacy" is case law driven and tends to favor the approach that if a normal person could see it, there is no expectation of privacy. Names can be published unless prevented by court order or law (this often occur with sex crimes).
Robert Jason De Groot's answer You have to get an attorney for the criminal case first. Then afterwards you might think about seeing an attorney for a full discussion of the issues regarding whether you even have any grounds for a lawsuit.
