ATTN Parkland Library Staff: World’s smallest library?

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.

  2. My oldest daughter works at the Parkland Library and the group there are regular readers. They recently were looking at some significant budget cuts so this seemed appropriate.
