The Little Red Library

I love this little lending library made from a British telephone box. The residents of Westbury-sub-Mendip in Somerset can come by 24 hours a day and choose from a hundred titles on hand including CDs and DVDs. Users simply swap out a title that they have read or seen for one they haven't. If quainter is a word, I doubt there's anything that is.

  1. If you think that's quaint, check this out!

  2. The only thing that would make this more awesome would be if it was a blue Police call box... TARDIS style! I want to make one of these for my neighborhood (ok, it's not a real neighborhood... it's a standard american subdivision, but this would make it BETTER).

  3. CharlesP - I recall seeing some complete Tardis plans on the net somewhere. Google it, build it, and then send me pictures! Thanks for the comment!
