Submit a book review online or at the library for extra chances to win.

  1. REGISTER: Register for Summer Reading online or at the library beginning Saturday, June 17th. Anyone who registers at our Summer Reading Kick-Off Event Saturday, June 24th will be entered into our exclusive Kick-Off raffle: a Dave & Buster’s Gift Basket.
  2. GET YOUR SUMMER READING KITPick up your Summer Reading Kit at the library or download it. This will contain your BINGO card!
  3. BINGO TIME! Check off reading and activities on your BINGO card as you go. Turn your activities and BINGOs into raffle tickets by bringing it to the library and showing it to a library staff member.
    • Each activity or square completed earns you 1 raffle ticket for a weekly gift card raffle.
    • Each BINGO (5-in-a-row vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) earns you 1 raffle ticket for one of the Grand Prizes.
    • Completing the entire BINGO card earns you 1 additional raffle ticket for one of the Grand Prizes.
    • Fill out as many BINGO cards as you’d like. Additional cards will be available online and at the library.
    • If a book qualifies for multiple BINGO boxes, it can be used for all applicable boxes. However, the same book cannot be used for the same box twice.
      • For example, if you read Dracula by Bram Stoker with another person and submit a review, that can count for the “Read a book,” “Read a book with another person,” and “Submit a review” boxes, but it will not be counted for “Read a book” twice.
  4. SUBMIT BOOK REVIEWS: Submit a book review online or in the library beginning Saturday, June 24th. Each book review earns you 1 bonus raffle ticket for the Grand Prize. Your review will be displayed at the library to inspire other readers!

What “books” count?

  • Format doesn’t matter – books, audiobooks, magazines, eBooks, etc. are all good.
  • Whether it’s reading a graphic novel, magazine, or listening to an audiobook, it counts!
  • All reading must occur within the program dates.
