British Phone Booth Donated to University

Posted by Eddie Schmidt on Jul 7th 2010

Jane Howell, retiring director of the MSUB Library, thought a red British phone booth was “an interesting way to remember the funny English lady.” So, she purchased the authentic phone booth from Billings Army Navy Surplus and had it restored. Then she donated it to the Montana State University Library in Billings, Montana in remembrance of her 4 decades of service there.

The Billings Gazette has the full story and the ribbon cutting ceremony in the MSUB Library is below. Hopefully students go inside and close the door to talk on their cell phones while in the library so they don’t distract others!
