Homeless women and those on low incomes in West Norfolk will benefit from the extension of a service set up to provide free sanitary products at libraries.
The widening of Norfolk Library Service's Tricky Period project to Dersingham, Downham Market, Gaywood, Hunstanton and King's Lynn libraries comes following a successful launch in Norwich.
Libraries take donations of products for people who cannot afford them.
Libraries around Norwich have been running the scheme since the Autumn with more than 250 packs handed out.
Staff at West Norfolk libraries are now also taking in donations of tampons, sanitary towels and carrier bags ready to start the scheme in February.
