Summer Book Bingo: A reading challenge for adults

2016 Summer Book Bingo

It's the second annual Summer Book Bingo reading program for adults! Pick up a Bingo Card at your neighborhood library, or download a PDF.

The Seattle Public Library and Seattle Arts & Lectures teamed together again so you can spend your summer reading great books and have a chance to win fabulous prizes!

Readers 15 and older, fill in your Bingo Card with the titles and authors of the books you've read between May 23, 2016, and Sept. 6, 2016. Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person, please.

BINGO: Complete a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line and you will be entered into a drawing for a $30 gift card to an independent book store. Collect prizes in person at the Library branch of your choice.

BLACKOUT CARD: Complete all 25 squares to enter a drawing for the grand prize - a library of books by 2016-2017 Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) authors, and two tickets to the entire SAL 2016-2017 season. Blackout cards will be automatically entered into the bingo drawing.
