Old telephone phone booths get new life as libraries

“TWO Czechs have breathed new life into telephone booths made obsolete in the mobile phone age, converting them into mini libraries with the first one installed at a Prague hospital on Thursday. On the shelves of the red booth, patients of the IKEM hospital will find a plethora of genres, including works by US crime writer John Grisham, Czech and Russian titles and biographer Andrew Morton’s Diana: Her True Story. Library mastermind Monika Serbusova, 27, said she and a friend drew inspiration from a similar project in Britain.” (via News.com.au)
