City Reads 2005 – 2019

City Reads was our annual big read for adults which ran from 2005 – 2019. After 14 successful years we decided to diversify our adult programme, working with a wider range of partners from the cultural, community and public sectors on different reading initiatives, at different times of the year. All our adult events now act as fundraisers to support our work with children and young people. See the City Reads ARCHIVE for the events programmes for each year and our FLICKR Page for photos.
