A SELECTION of books from Royston's French twin-town La Loupe have been donated to Royston library.

The books were handed over by Royston & District Twinning Association president David Gray after a recent visit to La Loupe.

The mayor of La Loupe, Christian Escobar, decided to donate the books after Royston has made a similar presentation to the French twin-town two years ago.

Twinning association publicity officer Clare Davies said that the English books were in "great demand" in the library in La Loupe.

"Those book were much appreciated and they are being used as a teaching aid for people learning English," she said.

A wide-ranging selection of books have been donated to Royston library which include French translation of well-known English authors such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, P D James and Barbara Taylor Bradford.

There was also a selection of children's books.
