The smallest library I have ever seen…

I was walking through Melbourne Central in the CBD recently and found this little gem.

It is probably the smallest library I have ever seen. The Little Library has a mission to ‘promote literacy and the love of reading’ by using the library as a book exchange. People can take a book and hopefully drop another one off.

Little finds like this one keep me happy to have endless wanders around new places. I’m looking forward to finding more cool things like this for sure in the upcoming months.

    1. Haha that’s interesting. I think it’s a good use of the telephone boxes that are pretty much not required anymore. It will be interesting to see what they all get used for… I am sure I heard there was the possibility of adding defibrillators into them, but that might have just been a rumour.


  1. There is an even smaller one in Windsor Great Park, England, where an old red telephone booth has been turned into a similar library. You take a book, you can leave one. An honesty system that seems to work quite well.

    1. Haha, Thomas above in the comments mentioned the same thing! I will have to take a look on google for it as it sounds very cool and a good use of a telephone box.

    1. It definitely tops my one regarding size! I don’t think it is possible to find one any smaller haha. That’s very cool! Thanks for the link.


  2. In my town, we have these curbside repositories called “mini-libraries” or “Little Free Libraries.” They’re boxes with glass doors, where you leave a book and/or take a book.
