The Seattle Public Library is aiming to encourage adults to read this summer with the launch of Book Bingo! The Book Bingo contest is presented in partnership with Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) and offers a fun and creative way for Seattle readers to expand their reading selections.
Locals can start playing now by picking up a Book Bingo card from any location of The Seattle Public Library or printing one online. Participants are encouraged to fill in the card with titles of the books they read all summer long.
When participants have marked out an entire row or all 25 squares, they can bring the completed Book Bingo card to any Library location or mail it to SAL (340 15th Ave. E., Suite 301, Seattle, WA 98112.)
Participants can also can enter by posting a photo of your completed card using #BookBingoNW2017 via Facebook (@SeattlePublicLibrary @SeattleArtsAndLectures), Instagram (@seattleartsandlectures @seattlepubliclibrary) or Twitter (@SeaArtsLectures @SPLBuzz).
Participants who complete a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line will be entered into a drawing to win a $30 gift card from one of nine independent book stores.
Winning entries will be selected at random. Prizes may be collected at the Library location of your choice. Prizes include gift cards to Ada’s Technical Books, Elliott Bay Book Company, Open Books: A Poem Emporium, Phinney Books, Queen Anne Book Co., Ravenna Third Place Books, Secret Garden Books, Seward Park Third Place Books and University Bookstore.
Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 5.
