SPINE is developed by Apples and Snakes’ with the aim of engaging more children and young people with literature and creative and cultural activities in their local libraries, as well as to encourage schools to build lasting connections for longer­ term impact.

SPINE Festival was produced by Apples and Snakes in partnership with library authorities across London.
