Summer Reading 2017:  June 1 – August 31

Summer is our favorite time of the year! And this year, it is all kinds of easy:

  • For kids in grades K – 6:
    • Pick up or print out (PDF) a BINGO card!
    • Set your own reading goal! Read (or listen to) one square, a row or blackout – you decide! We’ll provided a bingo card full of reading ideas.
    • Once you complete your goal, bring your bingo card to the library and celebrate with a mystery coupon from one of our Community Sponsors, a Summer Reading SUPERSTAR yard sign and a free book to keep.
  • For kids ages birth – 5:
    • Pick up or print out (PDF) a BINGO card!
    • Parents, set an activity goal for you and your child. The bingo card is full of suggestions for incorporating the five practices (Talking, Singing, Reading, Writing and Playing) into your daily routine.
    • Once the goal is met, bring the bingo card to the library and celebrate with a mystery prize, a Summer Reading SUPERSTAR yard sign and a free book to keep.

NOTE:  Summer Reading bingo cards will be distributed to all public and most private schools in Bellingham by June 1st.
