ImagiNation - Turning Reading on its Head

Friday, 6th July 2018

Southend Libraries are calling all young people aged 10 -18 years to take part in ImagiNation, “Turning Reading on its Head”. The Arts and Reading activity runs in all libraries in the Borough from 14th July – 1st September.              

It’s free to join and everyone who takes part will receive a small gift, with a chance to win a pair of Beats by Dr Dre Headphones.

The aim of ImagiNation is to enjoy reading over the summer and then get creative! You’ll get a log when you join, with activities to choose from to help you express your ideas about what you have read, or record how a book made you feel. You don’t have to be ‘good at drawing’ and you don’t have to write lots if you don’t want to: instead you could paint a picture, take a photo, write a poem, and use music…. anything creative that sparks your imagination.

Southend Libraries are very pleased to be able to offer this free activity to Young People and hope to see as many as possible take part during the summer holidays.

Visit for more details. ImagiNation is a partnership project between the libraries in the East of England, supported by Arts Council England
