We have a brand new summer reading website, Bookawocky
! You can earn online badges by reviewing books, making book lists, taking quizes, and writing blog posts about how you are using the library this summer. And you can find out what other kids and teens are reading and doing this summer. Every time you earn a badge you can enter a drawing to win a free book. We have eight different badges and you can earn as many badges as you want in any combination (although you can only win once). So don't wait; get your summer off to a great start and begin your summer reading today!
