A woman reading on a beach wearing a sun hat, laying on her back with the book extended in the air. Why should kids have all the fun? Adult Summer Book Bingo is back!

What is book bingo? It’s a self-directed summer reading game for adults.
Pick up or print off a bingo card, fill the appropriate squares as you read books, get a line and enter the draw.

How to play:

  1. Beginning July 4 pick up a card from any branch of the Library or print off your own!
  2. List the books you read on the back of your card and mark off the appropriate square on the front. Only one book title per square please! (i.e. You can’t use the same title for multiple squares.)
  3. Complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line. That’s a BINGO!
  4. Return your card and be entered into a monthly draw. Draws will be held on August 2 and September 1.
  5. To be eligible for the draws, entries must be received by July 31 and August 31 respectively.
  6. No limit on the number of entries.
  7. Only one prize per participant.
  8. You must be 18+ and have a valid Ajax Public Library Card.
