Book Bingo

Madison Library’s Monthly 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! Each bingo lasts from the first day of the month to the last day of the month.

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.

Rules of Play

For Those 11 and Under:

1. This challenge is open to patrons of the Madison Library District who can read on their own and are age 11 or younger. You must have a valid library card number to play or your parent or guardian must be a card holder.

2. Challenge dates go from the first to the last of each month. No entries will be accepted for a previous month’s challenge after the 3rd of the new month (or the next open weekday if the Library is closed on the 3rd). Drawings will be held the following day.

3. Any books read during the current month may be used for the challenge even if starting the challenge mid-month.

4. Challenges may be completed in any order.

5. To count for a challenge, books must contain chapters and be at least 60 pages long to count. Plays or books of poetry may be combined to reach the 60 page minimum. Picture books do not count for this challenge.

6. Any form of book (print, audio, or ebook) is acceptable unless otherwise stated in the task. For the length of audio or e-books, please research the length of the print version to make sure it is of appropriate length.

7. Each book that is read can only be used for one square, with the following exception: Books over 300 pages may count for TWO squares, as long as the book fits both challenges. If your book is over 500 pages, it may count for THREE squares, but, again, it must fit all three challenges.

8. Limit of one bingo sheet per person per month. If you complete an entire board in a month, you will need to wait until the new month begins to start the new board. 9. Have fun! Branch out and read something new. Many times we can discover new favorites by reading outside of our usual choices.

For Those 12 and older:

1. This challenge is open to patrons of the Madison Library District who are at least 12 years of age. You must have a valid library card number to play or your parent or guardian must be a card holder.

2. Challenge dates go from the first to the last of each month. No entries will be accepted for a previous month’s challenge after the 3rd of the new month (or the next open weekday if the Library is closed on the 3rd). Drawings will be held the following day.

3. Any books read during the current month may be used for the challenge even if starting the challenge mid-month.

4. Challenges may be completed in any order.

5. Books must be at least 100 pages to count. Plays or books of poetry may be combined to reach the 100 page minimum.

6. Any form of book (print, audio, or ebook) is acceptable unless otherwise stated in the task. For the length of audio or e-books, please research the length of the print version to make sure it is of appropriate length.

7. Each book that is read can only be used for one square, with the following exception: Books over 500 pages may count for TWO squares, as long as the book fits both challenges. If your book is over 800 pages, it may count for THREE squares, but, again, it must fit all three challenges.
