Run the Book It! 5K

How would you like to help open up a world of imagination, technology and summer fun for children and youth this summer? All you need to do is sign up for the 10th anniversary Book It! 5K Walk/Run to be held from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 18, at the Roseville Library. The event raises money for Ramsey County Library’s Summer Reading Program for youth at all seven branches, including Maplewood, Mounds View, New Brighton, North St. Paul, Roseville, Shoreview and White Bear Lake. 

Last year, more than 5,756 children and teens took part in the summer program by reading and reviewing books. Activities are expansive (science, reading, arts, gaming, nature) and offered during different times of the day, keeping kids engaged and learning over the course of the summer. The goal is to not forget hard-earned reading skills during the three-month summer break from school. Event registration forms are available in the libraries or register online at www.rclfriends.org/events/5k. The Roseville Library is located at 2180 Hamline Ave. N.
