Dakota County Library Summer Reading Program Kick-off

Children of all ages won't be able to put down their favorite books while participating in a summer reading program at Dakota County libraries.
 
The Bookawocky Summer Reading Program at all Dakota County Library branches begins June 6 and runs through August 13. Kids and teens are encouraged to join.
 
Students up to grade 5 can pick up a Bookawocky Game Board and get prizes as they complete a combination of reading and fun activities. Activities include reading outside, reading a poem, attending a library event, and much more. 
 
When teens entering grades 6–12 sign up, they'll receive one free ticket to a Teen Takeover event at Cascade Bay Waterpark in Eagan on Aug. 4. Teens will also be eligible to win books, gift cards and a Galaxy Tablet by submitting book reviews through Aug. 16.
 
Bookawocky Art contests are being held for both children and teens to interpret the theme "My Summer Library Experience." Entries can be dropped at any Library branch from June 6 through July 16.
