The library - formerly the telephone exchange. A change of use of imparting one kind of communication for another. I remember the old telephone box nearby in the days when you put the money in box. Press Button A if you got through and press Button B if you could not. In pre automatic dialling you asked the operator to put you through. Now most homes have 'at least one phone line of their own'.
