Mini-libraries in NYC phone booths

February 22, 2012 at 8:15 pm 2 comments

New York City architect John Locke proposes converting neglected NYC phone booths into tiny little libraries. According to this article, “Using donated books, Locke tried a first version in one uptown neighbourhood that was promptly cleared of books in six hours and had the shelving stolen in a little over a week. His second version in another neighbourhood eight blocks south and pictured above, fared much better, thanks to the change of location and the addition of a Dewey-like organization system and official-looking DUB logo.” Thanks, Dina Wood!
