Old Bulgarian Trolleybus Transformed Into Awesome New Otets Paisiy Public Library

  • Named after Otets Paisiy, one of Bulgaria’s most famous authors, this awesome new public library is not your ordinary work of architecture. Located in Plovdiv, the former old trolleybus was retrofitted and transformed into a friendly new mobile library and parked right in an important pedestrian zone in the city. Designed by locally-based Studio 8 1/2, the Otets Paisiy Public Library is part of a larger effort by citizens to revitalize this bohemian area of town. With over 600 Bulgarian and foreign books available to the public, the renovated trolleybus library is exploration and new conceptual vision for libraries.
