Bookawocky celebrates reading at the libraries

Bookawocky is Anoka County Library’s celebration of summer reading.

Whether it’s an eBook, audio book, or paper copy, the 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 Anoka County 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 four-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 Aug. 17.

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

The library has programs for all ages and interests. Many are hands-on, creative and most important, a whole lot of fun.

Some programs do require individual registration via the online calendar. For a complete schedule of programs visit

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

From June 1 to 29, kids and teens can visit the library to reduce their fines by spending time reading. Ask a 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 fund-raising.
