In partnership with Pen World Voices Festival, New York-based architectural firm Stereotank was one of the ten designers to set up a ‘Little Free Library’.
Found in Downtown Manhattan at St Patrick’s Old Cathedral School in Nolita, Stereotank’s Little Free Library is like, but not exactly, a ‘yellow submarine’.
One can duck under and into the inversed yellow plastic tank, and be ‘cut out’ from the outside world, but immerse himself/herself with books found within the cubbyhole.
But if they like, from the inside, visitors in the little yellow library can also peek outside.
Passers-by can take their time to browse at the selection, and borrow or exchange a book.
