LONDON, England -- The phone booth is part of a vanishing America...

It's also a part of a vanishing England.

There's not much need for them anymore. In fact, the phone booths can be purchased for just one pound if they're for charitable purposes.

And that was perfect for a man who lived in southeast London.

He purchased one and turned it into a tiny library. People can come and take a book in exchange for an old book of their own. it's only been around since late last year but has now become a local landmark.
