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.
"The initiative is another example of how Herts' libraries continue to introduce new services that appeal to an ever-widening audience."
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."

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