Enter to win a $50 Visa Gift Card by participating in Book Bingo! To get started, pick up a Book Bingo Card from the Teen Department anytime during library open hours or use Beanstack to fill out your bingo card virtually.

Book bingo is like regular bingo, but instead of numbers and letters, each square has a type of book on it (such as “mystery” or “the favorite book of a friend or relative”). To make bingo, complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line by reading books in the corresponding categories! Each bingo you make counts as one entry for a $50 Visa Gift Card Raffle Prize! Fill out your whole board and get a special Southbury Library travel mug filled with candy!

Rules:

  • Book titles may only be used once per Bingo Card; each entry has to be a different title.
  • Books must be read during the March 1 to May 31 period.
  • One bingo (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) counts as one entry for a $50 Visa Gift Card.
  • If you complete all 24 categories, get a Southbury Library Teen Department mug filled with candy.
  • All Spring 2024 Teen Book Bingo entries are due by Friday, May 31, 2024. Beanstack entries are due by 11:59pm that day and paper entries are due to the library by 5:30pm.
  • The winner will be drawn from all eligible Beanstack and paper entries and will be notified at the contact information provided.

All entries are due by Friday, May 31; paper entries must be received by 5:30pm and Beanstack entries must be received by 11:59pm.

Looking for books that fit certain topics? You can search in our catalog, take a look at our Teen Book Topic & Genre Lists, or ask a staff member the next time you're in the library. Starting on Friday, March 15 we will have a binder of suggested books for each topic.
