Summer Book Bingo

Looking for a summertime day trip? Armchair travel while reading in a comfy chair indoors or browsing a book in the backyard could be perfect!

Add Summer Book Bingo and you can add a challenge to your summer reading and potentially broaden your reading list.

Pick up a bingo card at the library or download one from the library’s Book Bingo Subject Guide.

Read a book from each category until you get five in a row (or a postage stamp, blackout - you decide when you win!)

You can read ebooks and audiobooks to complete the challenge, too. There's no competition involved - unless, of course, you want to enroll your friends, neighbors, or book club in the game!

Post your winning card on social media using: #NSUBookBingo, #northernstateu, #northernstatelibrary. Tag us @nsulibrarian on Instagram and Twitter.

We'd love to hear what books you've been reading!
