Read Local

This winter, Anoka County Library is encouraging you to read local! We're showcasing 10 local authors who live in and around the Anoka County and Minnesota community, and we're encouraging you to check out their books from the library's collection. Each week, we'll feature a different author on our social media channels, but you can read about each of these authors below. Happy reading!

Challenge yourself to participate in the Winter Reads program for folks of all ages. During the months of January and February, log your reading, submit reviews, and complete different activities to earn digital badges. Get details on how to register for this fun program here.
