Spotted: A Library in a Phone Booth

Here's one way of prolonging the lives of urban payphones.

20130909phonebooks

SPOTTED BY: A Reddit Toronto user

WHERE: Outside Dufferin Station

WHEN: Last week

WHAT: The future of Toronto’s payphones may be in doubt now that many of us carry mobile devices, but the stalwart old booths are still everywhere, waiting for people to put them to use. Sure, this particular use isn’t what the phones were designed for, and it looks like more people are taking books than are leaving them. Even so, very clever. (Others have tried similar experiments in their own front yards.)
