Phone and the librarian

Buddy: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.

A visionary community project delivered in double-quick time. It almost never happens. But the good elves who wanted to turn Brockley's disused red phone boxes into something wonderful have produced the goods. So tomorrow, if you get any books you don't want, you know where to take them. The team behind the Brockley box project, launched earlier this year, write:

Lewisham has new library, a micro library! Situated on Loampit Hill on the corner of Tyrwhitt Road a disused K2 classic British phone box has been transformed into Lewisham's first mini library. 

It's free for all - all we ask is if you take a book to read, please replace with an old book of you own if you can.

The library will be open 24 hours so we are relying on the local community to use it, love it and keep watch over it. Interior designed and constructed by Sebastian Handley. Thank you to Claire Cowan at Brockley Society for administering the project. 

"Its not what you get, it's what you leave behind."

Hi everyone, just to say we found a big pile of books halfway down the road this morning which had been looted from the mini-library. They were still in good condition so we placed them back in the library and also disposed of an empty cider can that some twerp had dropped inside.
Love our local library and will continue to support it!
