We will meet in the Community Room.
May 1-31 (Every month has a new bingo challenge.)
Madison Library’s Brand New Reading Challenge
All ages can play. We have a bingo card for kids 11 and under, and one for teens and adults 12 and older. Read fun new books and audiobooks and win great prizes!
Here’s how it works:
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 in to 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.
For older teens and adults
