Teen volunteer novelwriter saw this post online and shared it with us:

As both books and classic red phone booths are becoming a thing of the past, a village in Somerset, England has merged the two rare commodities.

The bright red old phone booth was purchased for just 1 pound and remodeled as the smallest library in the world. Residents line up to swap their already read books for new ones left by other patrons. Over 100 books and a variety of movies and music CDs are available at this tiny library.

What do you think? Would you visit this phone booth if it was your only library? Would you like a tiny library like this right around the corner from your house?

I think I would, but I can’t imagine there’s much variety, or that new items come in.
