Join an online book club!
Cover Art There's still time to join an online book club this summer! Online book clubs are a great way to earn badges for Bookawocky. Our Girls Only and Guys Read book clubs are open to kids entering 4th through 6th grades. (There are also book clubs for teens entering 6th through 8th grades.)

Our next online book clubs will take place August 5-9. Guys Read will take on The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick. Girls Only will read Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper.

You can participate in an online book club any time of day throughout the week, and every day we have new discussion questions, opinion polls, trivia questions, and more! You just need a current email address (may use family email) and Internet access (you can use a computer at the library, at home or a mobile device) to join in the fun.

What are other kids reading this summer?
Cover Art Do you want to know what books other kids are going crazy for this summer? Or maybe even what books they don't like? Find out by reading book reviews written by kids. And you can write your own reviews and share your opinions. Every time you write a review, you can earn an online badge and enter a drawing to win a free book! You can also find book lists made by other kids and make your own lists to earn badges.

Pictures of you
A self-portrait is a picture you make of yourself. Sign up for an Art Out of the Box program to learn about portraits at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and to create your own.
