Wild Read! Teens Summer Reading Bingo

Ends: Sunday, August 28

Teens are invited to take part in “Wild Reads” the Library’s teen summer reading bingo. Read books from the different categories on the “Wild Reads” bingo card, then tell us about your choice and get your card stamped. For each stamp received, you will receive a ballot to fill out for a chance to win a grand prize. Once you have completed four squares in a row, bring your bingo card in to the Library and pick up a free book. Pick up a bingo card at any Public Service Desk, and turn your summer reading into prizes! 

Register in person at any Public Service Desk and pick up your free “Wild Reads” game card. You can join any time during the summer months.

The summer reading program for teens may be played in English or in French when French-speaking staff is available.
