Attention, book-lovers: phone booth libraries may just start popping up on street corners near you! One UK town has set the concept in motion by launching a 24-hour book borrowing serviceâ€"through a telephone booth.
The phone booth library is located in Westbury-sub-Mendip in Somerset, and was recycled from an old booth in part to preserve history.
With residents stocking and swapping out books, the library now houses over 100 choices. Not only eco-friendly and convenient, phone booth libraries like this are self-sustaining as they are entirely community-run.
