Petite Pop-up Libraries
This Tiny Reading Station is Only Big Enough for One

Pop up libraries are starting to become more popular, and this one is currently the smallest book exchange center in New York.  The ‘Little Free Library’ has recently popped up in Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood and it’s only big enough for one.

This media center was designed to create an inhabitable pop up library in which people could stop in and browse the books before borrowing one of them. The structure itself looks like a bucket on stilts. There are holes around the tank which allow visitors to peek inside and preview the interior. Ducking under you will find yourself in a fort-like space with a small collection of books.

This pop up library is the latest form of guerrilla education hubs that are appearing all around New York from back alleyways to pay phone booths.
