  • Summer Reading BINGO for all ages

    Prizes for completion.
    The BINGO card has categories such as “Author has the same last initial as you,” “A two-word title,” or “Set in NY State.” Participants can read any five books to complete a BINGO row, but since the library wants to promote reading, any five books will be accepted.

    Players then list the five books on the Book Bingo card and turn it in at the front desk for a special prize. All Book Bingo cards turned in will also be entered in a grand prize drawing at the end of the summer.
