Annual events in libraries

SPINE festival

Now in its 5th year, SPINE festival is a partnership between London Libraries and Apples and Snakes, England’s leading Spoken Word organisation. The festival celebrates creativity and community in libraries across London.

SPINE 2019 offered creative events and opportunities for young people enabling them to explore their local library and the pertinent theme of wellbeing in unexpected ways

The theme of SPINE 2019 was wellbeing and we have a number of events to unleash creativity or give advice about tackling stresses you may be experiencing.

We also have a collection of Shelf Help books which will are available to browse or loan from Surbiton and Tudor Drive libraries. You can also request books from the collection through any of our branches or online.

Find out more about the Shelf Help collection on the Reading Agency website.
