Phone Booth Guerilla “Libraries”

Have you seen this project by the fictional Department of Urban Betterment? It is a pretty neat repurposing some (largely) outmoded infrastructure to something else: an honors system book swap.

I know the word “library” has a few uses but I’m also a bit sad that we haven’t elevated it beyond the common “pile of books” use.

One thought on “Phone Booth Guerilla “Libraries””

  1. I think this is great, I came across it last night while attempting to catch up with my feeds. For some reason it reminds me of Nate Hill’s Library Lab furniture (the spirit? the color?) Either way it’s great and I like that it leaves the phone usable for those w/o cell phones.
