Bookawocky, Anoka County Library's summer reading experience, is a celebration of summer reading.  Whether it’s an eBook, audio book, or paper copy, Anoka County Library has plenty of options for sharing stories this summer.

Bookawocky is a great way families can Read, Explore and Connect at your library this summer to have fun and succeed in school,” said Library Board President Bob Thistle.
For every book read over the summer, kids can enter Read. Write. Draw. for a chance to win a book or a family 4-pack of passes to Bunker Beach. Teens can enter Best Book Ever for their chance to win.  Read. Write. Draw. and Best Book Ever run June 8 through August 17.

“This program is a great way to have fun and improve your reading skills. Plus there’s the chance of winning a 4-pack of passes to Anoka County’s Bunker Beach Water Park!  What could be better!” said Anoka County Commissioner Robyn West.

Explore Your Interests at Programs!
Anoka County Library has programs for all ages and interests.  Many programs are hands-on, creative and, most important, a whole lot of fun.  Some programs do require individual registration via our online calendar. For a complete schedule of programs visit anokacountylibrary.org.

Connect with other Readers!
Meet up with fellow readers at library book clubs.  Clubs meet at several libraries throughout the summer.  Or connect online through bookawocky.org where you can create your own booklists, find more great books to read, and earn virtual badges for reading, exploring, and connecting to your community.

Overdue fines got you down?  READ DOWN your fines in June.  From June 1 to June 29, kids and teens can visit the library to reduce their fines by spending time reading.  Ask your librarian for more information.  

Bookawocky is sponsored in part by the Friends of Anoka County Library.  The Friends supports the library and connects the community to connection to ideas, information, and inspiration though special events and programs, membership development, and fundraising.
