Phone Box Library #66 Barton Stacey, Hampshire

Barton Stacey LibraryBy way of John Spooner on flickr we learn that in the small Hampshire village of Barton Stacey, the parish council have converted their BT phone box into the UK's 66th phone box book exchange.

After a few months of planning and carpentry its been in operation since January 2012.

Looks like solid three shelf job, with a large noticeboard for parish notices. About 70 books, a couple of DVDs and several audio books. They have the almost obligatory copy of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code

Much like Thruxton, the other phone box library in Hampshire, the nearest public library to Barton Stacey in Andover, about seven miles away, which has not been threatened by closure. Barton Stacey is also serviced by a mobile library which has not been threatened by cuts.
