Once Upon A Time There Was An Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Lending Library (UK)

Standard

Townspeople in in Somerset, England (population 800), have a new library — a decommissioned classic red phone booth (“box” if your a local). More closely related to a swap than a lending library, there are no late fees, and certainly no room for a librarian. But there is enough space to store about 100 books and DVDs, which people are free to take and return at their leisure. Brilliant!

The idea came to a local resident when Westbury-sub-Mendip, the small Somerset village, lost its phone box and mobile library in quick succession, the Guardian reports.
