Book It 5K Walk/Run September 16, 2017

Want to get active and make a difference? Join us for the 8th annual Book It 5K Walk/Run at 9:00 am on Saturday, September 16 at the Roseville Library! Runners, walkers, strollers, volunteers, children, and library lovers are all invited to participate in this family-friendly fundraiser. This fundraiser is presented in partnership with Ramsey County Library and sponsored by the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries. Register online at or by mail with this printable registration form

This race raises funds for the Summer Reading Program for children and teens. The Summer Reading Program keeps children engaged in learning between school years. Being out of school for three months often halts students’ academic progress. The Summer Reading Program is one way that children can maintain their skills and, in some cases, actually increase their reading ability. This is possible with the help of people like you.

WHO: Everyone! All ages welcome. Stroller friendly! (No pets or inline skates please.) 

WHERE: Begins at the Ramsey County Library in Roseville 2180 Hamline Ave North and proceeds around Roseville's scenic Central Park.

REGISTRATION: Register online at or by mail with this printable registration form. Pre-event registration ends September 10. Race-day registration open 7:30 am on race day.
