An Honesty Library has opened at the Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough.

The literature corner features dozens of books donated by local people that includes anything from a Jane Austen romance to a reality star’s biography.

There are also plenty of children’s books too that parents and guardians can read together and engage young people’s creative minds.

The Honesty Library is located on the Upper Mall, next to JD Sports and is open to everyone to use for free. People can either relax in the upcycled chairs made from old bathtubs – kindly created and donated by Up the Garden Bath – or take a book home.

With no end to its presence on the mall and to ensure there is a constant variety of books available, Queensgate is accepting book donations at all times and these can be dropped off to Up the Garden Bath.

“We hope the Honesty Library inspires people to pick up a book, take time out from their busy days and let their imaginations run wild,” said a spokesperson for Queensgate.

“It’s easy to be consumed in our digital world but there’s nothing like reading a good novel and turning the page of a gripping thriller.”

Queensgate has partnered with Disability Peterborough on this project and also invites people to make a donation to the charity, which can be done by scanning the QR code at the Honesty Library.
