Adult & Teen Reading Challenge
November 2019 – May 2020
The weather outside might be frightful, but that makes it the perfect time for some armchair travel! Join us as we discover new people and places through world literature book BINGO. Here’s how it works:
- Register and pick up a BINGO board at any Information Desk starting November 1, 2019.
- BINGO squares have country names; read a book about or set in a country, or with an author from that country to check off a square.
- Check off five squares in a row to get a BINGO and complete your board.
- Turn in your completed board and pick up another one to keep reading!
- Your first BINGO earns you a prize; all completed boards will be entered into a raffle for additional prizes.
- All prizes and raffles will be awarded at a Celebration held after the challenge ends (date and location TBD).
- Challenge ends May 31, 2020
