Summer Book Bingo

Journey to the great beyond, learn something new, or lose yourself in a riveting story with summer reading at WFPL! This year, our librarians have crafted five stellar book lists to inspire your exploration. As you read, simply tally your books on our bingo cards to win prizes along the way. Bingo cards will be available at the Reference Desk beginning on Monday, June 24.

How to Play

In each square, write the book title or activity you completed. Bingo = 5 squares in a row, horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. When you get Bingo, bring your card to the Reference Desk to enter to win prizes. Be sure to fill out the bottom portion so we can contact you if you win! Then, feel free to take another card and try to get bingo again!


You will earn a small reward for every card you turn in. At the end of August, we'll draw from the entries for several gift cards to local restaurants and one lucky grand prize winner will take home a Kindle Fire! The more cards you fill in, the more chances you have to win.
