From a converted phone box in Lewisham to Walthamstow’s miniature TARDIS, London’s Little Free Libraries come in all shapes and sizes. These pint-sized book-swap hubs first appeared in the capital in 2014, after the project’s UK director came across a similar non-profit initiative in Georgia, USA and sought permission to replicate it across the pond.
What began as 12 colourful huts scattered around east London where members of the local community could donate and borrow books has now expanded all over the capital and beyond. Here are a few of our favourites.
