A Little Free Library has been established in Leytonstone.

The project, in Poppleton Road, aims to encourage ready and improve literacy.

People can donate and exchange books by depositing them in a decorated box.

It was officially opened by children’s author Sarah Bee, who lives in the area, and is outside the home of Felicity Hall and Robert Schroeder.

Artist Leticia Molera-Vasquez designed the library, which features local wildlife.
