A new mini adult lending library has opened for the community in Soham at The Shade Primary School.
It has a number of adult books donated by the library service and the English faculty at Soham Village College.
Anyone is welcome to borrow the books, by simply signing them in and out of the library, located in the main reception of the school.
Louise Aldridge, community participation officer, from the Cambridgeshire Library Service and Lisa Radcliffe, headteacher of The Shade, opened Little Library with the support of parents and pupils at the school.
Dr Carin Taylor, executive headteacher of the Trust hopes that adults who might find it difficult to get to the main library in Soham on a regular basis will enjoy browsing and borrowing books from the mini library.
She said: We hope that the Little Library provides a new focus for the community in north Soham.
“Above all, even more people are able to share their love of reading with their families and neighbours by taking about the books they have read and enjoyed from the shelves of LittleLibrary@The Shade.”
