Read Local

Anoka County Library encourages folks of all ages to read widely this winter season. As part of Winter Reads this year, we are challenging you to read local! You can sign up for the Winter Reads Beanstack challenge here. The challenge runs January 1 through February 28, 2022, and you can log your reading, write book reviews to share with other Anoka County readers, and complete different activities to be entered to win prizes.

These local authors will be attending the 5th Annual Local Author Fair on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at Northtown Library. We encourage you to check out their books from the library's collection or attend the fair to chat with these authors and learn more about their work.
