BINGO, LIBRARY PROGRAMS, AND MORE

— ALL FOR ADULTS!

Sign up for the Adult Summer Program to receive a reusable tote bag and bookmark!  Complete a Bingo Card and choose a prize from the prize basket.  Every completed card will also be entered to win one of THREE GRAND PRIZE PACKS at the end of the program.  Complete more cards to win big prizes throughout the summer.

All adults are welcome to attend our family programs, as well as special 21-and-over programs in June and July… no signup necessary!  Click here or see Adult Programs below for all the details.

A Universe of Stories

Kick your reading into gear this summer!  Bingo cards are available at the library with some ideas for you.  You can still complete a card by reading books, or you can combine any 5 squares in a row to finish your entry.

Return your bingo card to the library whenever a row has been completed, and pick a prize out of our grown-up prize basket.

If you need a new bingo card before you can make it in the library, you can print one here!

Read a book

Of course, you can always complete an entry just by reading!  One Read a Book square may be marked on the card for finishing any adult or teen level book.  Yes, you can read teen books like The Hunger Games, Divergent, or The Fault in Our Stars for credit, we just ask that you don’t count picture books or short chapter books to keep it fair for everyone.

While you’re reading, please consider joining the WBPL Goodreads group and reviewing your book in the library catalog so that others know what you think.

Give me SPACE

There’s a universe of stories out there.  Whether that means stories about the universe or stories that take place out in the universe is up to you!  This summer we’re celebrating the universe.  Whether you read about the stars, watch a science fiction movie, or expand your own horizons a little, you can earn prizes from the library!  As always, our bingo cards are full of ideas to get you started.

Grand Prize Packs

This year we’re extra excited to bring you some amazing GRAND PRIZE PACKS.  All completed bingo cards will be entered to win one of THREE grand prize packs.

Book Lovers Pack: Never run out of things to read again!  This prize pack includes a new Amazon Kindle Fire, an assortment of books, reading journal, mug, blanket, and more

Movie Lovers Pack: Whether you want to take in a summer blockbuster at the theater or have your own movie night at home, we’ve got you covered.  The prizes in this pack include a Marcus Theaters gift card, DVD pack, popcorn and candy

Music Lovers Pack: It might be silent in the void of space, but it doesn’t have to be in your home. This pack includes an iTunes gift card, bluetooth speaker, headphones, and more

Adult Programs

Summer library programs for grownups only!  Some adult programs are held After Hours for patrons age 21 and over.  You may bring beer, wine, or wine coolers if you feel so inclined.  Tell your friends!  We usually have a lot of fun.  🙂
