Repurposed Little Free Libraries: British Phone Booths

Those familiar red phone booths throughout England just aren’t being used as phone booths anymore. As in the US, everyone has their own cell or smart phone, and they just aren’t using public phone booths, so the phone companies have been removing them left and right. The thing is, England’s red phone booths have been such an important part of the landscape that folks waxing nostalgic are giving the booths new purposes. They’re becoming defibrillator stations, coffee shops, and free book exchanges. Check out this CBS piece on the repurposing of the Red Phone Booths.
