Since British Telecom began to 'retire' the traditional telephone boxes these have acquired new uses. Someone have turned into sanitary ware, showers or decorative elements.

In the people of Westbury-sub-Mendip, in Somerset, they have had the idea of transforming a cabin into a minilibrary with capacity for a hundred of books, CDs and DVDs.

The service is opened 24 hours and 7 days and the citizens can leave the books that they have already read and take others. The people was not provided with library and the most nearby is to several kilometers.

The cabin was acquired by the municipality at the one pound symbolic price.
