A disused telephone box has been transformed into a mini community library.

The kiosk in London Road, Shenley, officially opened on September 25 and it has already proven to be a hit.

Little Shenley Library, opposite Shenley village hall, is already stuffed full of books for all ages.

Visitors can take a book and return it once they have finished with it.

You cannot also donate any books you have lying about to the mini library.

Shenley parish councillor Natalie Susman has been involved in the initiative.

Cllr Susman said: "We have had a great response from many people, and it is wonderful to see people of all ages already using it. The idea of the library is that if you see a book that you fancy, you are welcome to take it, but it should be replaced with another one so that the library is always full.

"If anyone would like to donate any books to stop it getting empty you can drop them into Shenley Estates (next to Tesco). Every book donated will be going to good use and if it is not used for the library it will go to a charity which supports young people with learning difficulties."

Radlett based housebuilder, Griggs Homes, helped Shenley Parish Council to convert the former telephone kiosk.

Ross Griggs, director of Grigg Homes, said: "As a local company we are proud to be able to support the local community and are delighted to have been involved in such an innovative project in Shenley. Cllr Natalie Susman and Suzanne Raggett played a pivotal role in the creation of the new library and I know it will be enjoyed by many for years to come."

The book scheme in Shenley is now one of three running in our corner of Hertsmere.

Mini-libraries have also been set up at Radlett station and at Elstree & Borehamwood train station for commuters to take and book and read on their journeys.
