Warren Public Library to hold Reading Bingo
It’s reading for fun and, potentially, profit.
The Warren Public Library is holding Reading Bingo.
Teens and adults who would like to be rewarded for reading can go to the library to pick up a Reading Bingo card, according to Teen Services Specialist Amanda Bajdo.
Participants check out the card, then pick a line. If they read five books in a row, column, or diagonal – Bingo.
“They write in the books that they read for that line,” Bajdo said. “If they turn in their bingo board, they get a participation prize. They also get into a drawing for three different $25 Amazon gift cards.”
Time is limited, but speed-reading is not required. The contest ends on Nov. 22.
In addition to encouraging reading, the event is intended to raise some awareness that the library is open.
“The biggest thing I’m trying to do is get people to come into the library,” Bajdo said. “We’re still trying to get back and retain what we had prior to the pandemic.”
