Books & Bites

Books & Bites Bingo Reading Challenge, Winter-Spring Edition

Teens and adults, from now through June 30, 2024, keep track of books you read or listen to by writing the title and author in the matching square. You may use the same book more than once in squares with an asterisk. Otherwise, book titles may be used only once per card.

Complete all 25 squares for a chance to win a $100 Joseph-Beth gift card or an Amazon Kindle. You’ll also earn an enamel pin (while supplies last). During the month of June, turn in your completed card at the Ask a Librarian, Customer Service, or Teen Desks.

Download the Winter-Spring Books & Bites Bingo card (PDF, 461 KB) to get started.
