How It Works
Complete spaces on the Bingo Card by reading books and participating in other activities. For spaces that involve reading books, each book read will count for one space. When four spaces have been completed in a line horizontally, diagonally, or vertically you will have a Bingo! Clear your first Bingo line to earn an entry into the raffle at the end of the program! If you complete the entire sheet, you’ll earn a second entry into the raffle to double your chances!
Complete your Bingo Card by March 10, 2023 to finish the program and to be eligible to enter our raffle! Paper Bingo Cards must be returned to the Reference Desk by the program’s end date.
This year’s raffle prizes include:
One (1) Grand Prize Winner: One (1) $40.00 gift certificate to Island Books in Middletown, RI.
Two (2) Runners-Up: One (1) $20.00 gift certificate to Empire Tea and Coffee.
Raffle winners will be drawn the following week. Please note that prizes must be picked up in person and cannot be mailed.
