September Book Bingo

September Book Bingo

September Book Bingo

Crayons

It’s book bingo! We have bingo pages available at the library. This month’s theme is “Crayons.” Read enough books that fit the challenges on the bingo paper to get a bingo, bring in your completed card, and get a prize. There is a bingo board for ages 11 and younger and another for ages 12 and older.

Instructions:

Step 1: Read the challenges and pick a bingo line that most appeals to you.

Step 2: Read a book that completes a challenge. Read another. And another.

Step 3: When you are able to cross off 5 squares in a row on the board, bring your sheet into the
Circulation Desk for a prize and an entry in our monthly drawing. We will have a separate
drawing for each age group.

Step 4: Keep reading! You can get as many prizes and entries as there are bingos on the board.
The game ends on the last day of the month.
