Polish children living in Cumbria will soon have more library books to choose from, thanks to a book-swap scheme.
Cumbria County Council's Library Service is set to receive dozens of Polish language books from the Zielona Gora public library in western Poland.
In return, it will despatch 100 books to Poland to help children who are learning English as a second language.
There has been an increase in the number of migrant workers plugging gaps in the county's labour market.
The scheme, which has been set up with the help of Europe Direct Cumbria, will see popular titles such as Thumbelina and The Little Red Hen winging their way to junior library-goers in Poland.
