A HELENSBURGH supermarket has launched a book exchange scheme to make reading accessible for every child.

Morrisons set up the Little Library across from the store’s kiosk counter in the hopes it will encourage young people to pick up a free story as they exit.

The Cardross Road store is also asking shoppers to donate books using a letterbox set up in the same spot.

Community champions will also be giving copies of chain-exclusive book Cedric the Seed to local schools and community groups.

The move is part of a nationwide literacy campaign introduced by the supermarket at the beginning of May.

Meanwhile, Autumn Brown from the Rosneath Events community project attended the store on Tuesday to collect three trolleys loaded with plants for the initiative, and the store also donated fruit kebabs to Hermitage Primary for the school’s Healthy Eating week.

On the same day store staff donated £285.50 to a representative of the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity from a recent fund-raiser.
