MINNEAPOLIS - Reading is an important activity for kids of all ages, all year round. But, it's even more important during the summer months when school is not in session.
The public libraries around Minnesota host a summer reading program for kids and teens alike. This summer, a new website makes it possible to participate in the program anywhere.
Bookawocky.org is the summer reading program online experience, that provides the opportunity to track what you've read, rate and review books, and get suggestions from other readers around the state.
In addition to finding and checking out books, libraries host a variety of events throughout the summer kids and families of all ages.
The 2013 summer reading program will officially kick off on Thursday, June 20 at Como Zoo. Activities will run from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. just outside the administration building.
