Over the years the rise of the mobile phone has left many phone boxes falling into disrepair. Often vandalised, they appear on street corners looking rather forlorn and neglected. But BT stepped in and launched their Adopt a Kiosk scheme. Then a group of innovative volunteers in Brockley, Lewisham decided to repair, renovate and turn their phone box into a mini lending library.
Residents are encouraged to take a book while replacing it with one of their own old books if they can. What a brilliant idea. Inscribed in the phone box it says: ‘It’s not what you get, it’s what you leave behind.’
So . . . who’s up for adopting a kiosk?
