Summer Reading Program

Bookawocky: Your Teen Summer Reading Experience
June 7 - August 17

Another successful year for "Bookawocky," Ramsey County Library's 2014 Summer Reading Program. Teens wrote book reviews for a chance to win the weekly prize drawing for gift cards at Target or Barnes and Noble, tickets to the Minnesota State Fair and passes to Waterpark of America. At the end of the summer, every review enters you into our grand prize drawing to win one of three iPad minis!

The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries and Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA).
