A freshly painted red telephone box was delivered to its spot opposite Tesco in the middle of July, and although we have heard a few people discussing the merits of public telephones since its arrival, this particular one is earmarked for use as a library. It will be kept under wraps until shelving has been installed. After that, residents are encouraged to donate books they think others would enjoy.
Our own miniature library is modelled on successful examples elsewhere; the idea is that anyone is free to borrow a book as long as they bring it back when they have finished reading it, or replace it with another. All donations must be appropriate for young eyes, but the library is intended for adults as well as children to exchange books. And of course, if Superman also needs to make use of it, who are we to argue?
