On Thursday 14th February, Southend library launched the latest six Quick Reads Books with Waterstones staff, Southend Adult Community College staff, Adult learners and Library staff.

The launch was joined by two Southend United Players; Sean Clohessy and Neil Harris. Southend Library are trying to encourage people to sign up to the Six Book Challenge before the end of February.

Quick Reads sets out to show that books and reading can be for everyone as 1 in 6 adults of working age in the UK find reading difficult and may never pick up a book. These books are simply shorter and easier to tackle for adults who are less confident in their reading skills.
