World’s smallest library

We’re pretty sure we’ve found the smallest library in the world.  We originally thought it was the phone booth library in the UK but this library is even smaller.

The Corner Library in Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY was created by an artist, Colin McMullan, as an art project that works as a fully functional library.

Anyone in the local area can access the library.  They just need to obtain a “library card” first from Colin.  The “card” consists of the code to unlock the library.  Once a person has become a member they can borrow any item from the library and share any items they want by putting them in the library for other members to borrow.

Of course the library is always open to members and you certainly don’t have to worry about it being closed due to budget cuts.  We think it’s a great idea.
