Disused call-box turned into world's smallest lending library

Steve sez, "A traditional red phone box has been recycled into one of the UK's smallest lending libraries – stocking 100 books, CDs, and DVDs.

The phone booth was bought from British Telecom for £1, and it looks like something right out of a Doctor Who episode." [ed: technically, the Tardis is a police call box, which is green blue, not red] [/comicbookguy]

Users simply stock it with a book they have read, swapping it for one they have not…

"This facility has turned a piece of street furniture into a community service in constant use."

A resident dreamed up the idea when the village lost its phone box and mobile library in quick succession.

Phone box has new life as library

(Thanks, Steve!)
