Japan's bullet train library
One of the coolest children's libraries ever!
A decommissioned bullet train locomotive has been turned into a children's library in the town of Akishima, Japan. The city government thought that having an old bullet train as a library would make a trip to the library exciting for young readers. The library features some of the original train seats as well as the "cockpit" controls where visitors can pretend they are driving the train. Did you know a bullet train can travel over 200 miles per hour?
