A book exchange has been launched at St Albans City station, enabling commuters to grab a book on the go.
Rail users are encouraged to help themselves to books at the bookshelves situated on each platform of the station, and to drop off any unwanted books by handing them in to station staff.
The book exchange was organised by station assistant and poet Sharnice Miles, 29. She said: "I feel reading is a lost art and I wanted to give something back to the community.
"It's been a little bit overwhelming because I wasn't expecting the huge response I have received, so I've been really grateful."
Sharnice cut the ribbon to officially unveil the book exchange on Thursday, July 18, along with Bedford author Tony Drury.
