Bookawocky: My Summer Library Experience

Get reading with Bookawocky, Ramsey County Library’s 2015 Summer Reading Program!
All you have to do is read a book and tell us what you think of it. Enter book reviews online with the super easy form at www.bookawocky.org.
Write book reviews for a chance to win the weekly prize drawing of gift cards from Target and Barnes & Noble, as well as pairs of state fair tickets. At the end of summer, every review enters you into our grand prize drawing to win one of seven $50 visa cards. *
