Park Libraries in Columbia

I absolutely love this idea.  When I first saw this, I thought it was a bus stop.  It's not, but it probably should be. 

It's a portable park based library in Columbia.  They have about 100 around the country to encourage literacy.  Each are staffed with a worker who receives a small stipend.  It wouldn't be hard to redo these as library vending machines in urban locations.  It would make waiting for the bus much more relaxing and attractive.
