Empty phone box becomes 'library'

Help

A phone box in a North Yorkshire village which was lying empty has been taken over by residents and is being used as a tiny library.

The kiosk in the centre of Marton cum Grafton is now being stocked up with books after the parish council bought it from British Telecom for £1.

Council clerk Linda Bullus said: "We are going to use it as a book exchange and are hoping people drop off books."

Children in the village are among those involved in the project.
