British Red Phone Booth Library

Love it! Residents of the British village of Westbury-sub-Mendip are on record with the smallest, functioning library in the UK. This converted British Telecom red phone booth is now a library - complete with children's books! Actually, this library stocks about 100 books. According to Daily Mail, the library is open 24 hours and is lit. Additionally, the phone company, "BT has received 770 applications for communities to 'adopt a kiosk' and so far 350 old boxes have been handed to parish councils." Enjoy!

This is a cool article. I don't remember the last time that I saw a pay-phone booth in America ... and I can never imagine them being used as libraries!
