street library
This former phone booth in the English town of Westbury-sub-Mendip was turned into a free book exchange – story

According to this article on the KIN website:-

A colourful new addition to Raumati Rd is turning heads as well as pages, thanks to the efforts of a local librarian, Cloe Willetts

The idea is to bring books to the people in their local communities.

Users are encourage to take one / leave one, or just add to the stock.

The colourful Little Library is the first of its kind in the area, but has encouraged other communities to set up their own.

Plans are underway in Waikanae and Paekakariki to provide such book options for locals.
