Why should kids have all the fun? Summer reading programs can be for adults too! Summer reading encourages people to read, use their public libraries, and think about how to squeeze in a few more pages before bed.This year, we are changing up our format and doing a Book Bingo. Each square of our bingo card gives you the challenge to read a particular type of book. Complete either a horizontal, vertical or diagonal square to get Bingo, or complete the whole card for Blackout. To register, stop by the library on or after Monday, June 25, and pick up a book tote and Bingo card, with more details about participating.  Don’t forget to sign up for our summer reading e-newsletter which will arrive weekly in your inbox, packed with ideas for reading. Enjoy your summer of reading and turn in your card by Tuesday September 4 to be eligible for prizes.
