A Kings Langley resident has suggested the introduction of a phone box library to the village, which would help cheer people up and provide something for the village to do during lockdown two.
Jacqueline Hubble, who lives in the village, would like to transform the empty phone box on Chipperfield Common into a hub for books, DVDs and more.
This idea stems from Jacqueline’s love for books throughout her life and the belief that many children could benefit from this project.
She said: “Books have always been quite a big part of my life. It was something me and my mum used to do when I was younger.
“She passed away when I was 17 and I turned to books to kind of get through it.”
Jacqueline added that the library could be of huge benefit to people’s mental health during the second lockdown.
She said: “I thought what with lockdown, I do genuinely believe books help with your mental health and with this second one, I think it would really help some people in the village and give them something different to do.
“Certainly with kids as they are just getting lost with what is going on at the moment. I think it would be something quite fun for them.”
Jacqueline now plans to contact the council to try and get the phone box library started, with the help of donations of books, DVDs etc.
