Phone Box Libraries

18 May 2014

On a ride this weekend I finally got to see one of the fabled Phone Box Libraries. Classic, but now obsolete, red phone boxes are being converted into small independent libraries for communities lacking in a such a facility. In this case of this one in Gawcott, Buckinghamshire, it’s a book swap.

From Monday-Saturday, 10am-6pm, you can bring a book and and swap it for another. The cynic in me expected it to be trashed, but it’s obvious the locals respect and use it. I love how it keeps these beautiful pieces of iron architecture in use!
