Library Book Bingo

Library Book Bingo is the NGPL’s reading challenge for 2022. Adults, teens, and children can all participate–and win prizes!

This program was made possible by the generosity of the Davison Family and Sherman's Maine Coast Book Shop of Freeport.

How do I play?

Keep track of the library books you read (or have read to you) in 2022 and write the title and author in the matching square.

A title can only be used once on the Bingo card.

Does it matter what format I read?

No. Physical books, e-books, audiobooks, or e-audiobooks can be used to complete the challenge. You can read children’s, young adult, or adult books–no matter your age.

How do I win?

BINGO: Complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line! You’ll get 1 entry for a $25 gift card from a local bookstore per bingo completed. Three $25 gift cards will be awarded: one for adults, one for teens, and one for children.

Blackout:Complete all 25 squares and you’ll also be entered in a drawing for the Grand Prize, a $100 gift card from a local bookstore.

Books must be read between January 1 and December 31, 2022.
