ROYSTON library is part of a new reading initiative.

From this week, it has started to loan lifestyle magazines, such as Vogue and Gardener's World, to its members.

The initiative comes after a successful pilot scheme where members said they appreciated the opportunity to save money on the cover price of monthly magazines.

County Councillor Keith Emsall, executive member for community safety and culture, said he was delighted to see this service rolled out across Herts.

Shirley Everall, the stock development librarian responsible for extending the service, said: "The titles have been chosen based on the popularity of the magazines selected for the pilot libraries."

Glenda Wood, head of Herts libraries, said: "Some people prefer to read magazines rather than books."

The magazines on offer are monthly or quarterly and cover a wide range of interests including computing, health, photography, and lifestyle.

They will be available on a one-week loan by using the normal library membership card.
