Budding architects to build cities at Dursley Library


Dursley Library is welcoming children and young people along to create their very own cardboard cities and help create a new story based on their constructions.

Free places can be booked through Dursley Library or Eventbrite by visiting

The event takes place on Saturday 8th April from 10am – 4pm at Dursley Library, May Lane, Dursley, GL11 4JH.

The project is part of the Arts of Libraries programme, which helps turn the library into a creative and playful space that celebrates reading and the enjoyment of storytelling through a range of art forms – a space for imagination and experimentation.

Over the day the community in Dursley will be able to build together a new story made of buildings and props in the library, exploring the delights and challenges of living in a world with big ideas.

Jane Everiss, head of libraries said: “This will be a fun event for young people to have a go at building their own city and explore the world of story making. Please make sure you register to avoid disappointment.” Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest
