Book It 5K Walk/Run

Date: May 19, 2018 Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Event Description 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 ninth annual Book It! 5K Walk/Run to be held from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Roseville library. The event raises money for the Ramsey County Library’s Summer Reading Program for youth at all seven branches of Ramsey County Library, including Maplewood, Mounds View, New Brighton, North St. Paul, Roseville, Shoreview and White Bear Lake. Prizes for top finishers in each category. Snacks and beverages available at the finish. Free t-shirt!

Last year, more than 5,200 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.
 
Registration forms are available in the libraries or register online at www.rclfriends.org/5k2018

Keep the fun going while you wait to cheer your favorite runner across the finish line:
  • Roseville Fire Truck on site!
  • Free kids fun run with book prizes!
  • Free yoga warm-up!
  • PopUp Library in the parking lot with button-making activity!
 
The Book It 5K is presented in partnership with Ramsey County Library and sponsored by the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries. Learn more at www.rclfriends.org.
