Summer Reading Bingo

Summer Reading is for Everyone of All Ages!

Looking for something new to read on these hot summer days? Want to challenge yourself to read more this year? Come to the library and pick up a bingo card full of suggestions, available for kids (in the Larchwood Room), teens (in the YA area), and adults (by the reference desk).

Please Note:

  • Only one card per person.
  • Book titles may only be used once per card.


Single square:

Add a star sticker for every square you finish to the space-themed bulletin board in the Larchwood Room, YA area, or Main Reading Room. Together we will build a universe of stories!


Complete a full horizontal or vertical line to earn a prize – for kids and teens, a frozen summer treat, and for adults, a free book from the Friends of the Library’s Book Nook book sale.


Complete all squares and turn in your finished card (with your name on it!) to enter a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Blue Hill Books. There will be one winner each for kids, teens, and adults. Kids and teens who complete all squares can also pick out a free book to keep from a special collection at Claire’s desk in the Larchwood Room.

What Do I Read?

Ask library staff for recommendations – we are always happy to suggest books for you! We have also created booklists for different squares (see below).

Booklists based on square categories:
