MINNEAPOLIS - When school is out for the summer, reading is a great way to keep the learning go. Bookawocky is a summer reading program available through local public libraries. The program is free and offers fun opportunities and chances to win prizes.

Sign up through the Bookawocky website or learn more at your local library. Kids can track what they read, share book reviews, find fun events to participate in, and more through the website. Looking for a good book to read, check out the book lists or ask a librarian. You can even check out e-books.
