Book Bingo is back!

 
It's time for Book Bingo 2019! Download and print this year's Bingo Card, or pick one up from the Circulation Desk in the main lobby.

The rules are as follows:
  • Each book, movie, or action can count for multiple squares. You are responsible for determining how many squares you cross off and for what reasons (see Rule #1: Be Awesome).
  • When you complete a row in any direction, bring it in to receive a raffle ticket. Fill it out with basic contact information and enter it into the drawing. Then, take your card back to complete more Bingos. A completed card (all boxes crossed off) gets an extra ticket, for being super awesome.
  • Book Bingo runs from Monday, June 17 through Saturday, August 31, 2019. You can pick up a card and play at any time during these ten weeks.
  • Anyone can play--no age restrictions!
At the end of the summer, we'll draw from the raffle ticket jar to determine our winners. Prizes come from local businesses.
 
If you have any questions, contact the Reference Desk at 781-784-1578 x1422.
