Reading a book has just become even more captivating. This miniature wooden library for a Toronto suburb is designed to provide a public reading nook and book exchange, and folds into a box at night for security. Called the Story Pod, the community-funded lending library and book exchange opens up to reveal shelves and seating nooks for reading.

The design was very eco as it uses the standard dimensions of plywood and lumber to minimise construction waste.

The outside of the box is clad in black vertical wooden slats that are spaced at varying widths to add visual interest and aesthetic. These slats also overlay two clear polycarbonate plastic panels to create views through and into the structure.
