Library In A Phone Booth

A traditional red phone box has been recycled into one of Britain's smallest lending libraries, stocking 100 books. Villagers from Westbury-sub-Mendip in Somerset can use the library around the clock, selecting books, DVDs and CDs. Users simply stock it with a book they have read, swapping it for one they have not.

After witnessing their weekly mobile library disappear, this town wasn't going to let their iconic phone booth be taken away as well. Conceived by a local resident as a way to save a bit of history while satiating the curious minds of the township, the classic phone booth was recycled into what has now become the country's smallest library.
