Work by talented Lichfield students has taken centre stage at Shenstone Library.
The facility, on Main Street, is now run by the community and officially reopened in June.
The library now includes an art gallery and work by the King Edward VI School A Level students is among the first to go on display.
A spokesperson said: “It fills the walls with fresh, youthful and thought-provoking works of art.
“There will be a series of exhibitions running at the library in future with work from art societies, solo artists and other areas of interest.”
The volunteers have also introduced a coffee shop area in the revamped facility – and they hope families will visit to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge.
The spokesperson added: “We all want to see children and young people enjoying books.
“There is also a play area beside the coffee shop so it is a great place for mums, dads and little ones to socialise as well as our ‘regulars’ who can’t resist the coffee and cakes.”
