Summer Reading Challenge 2022

Summer is coming, and hopefully you'll find some extra time to enjoy a few good books. Keep your brain flexed while classes are out and join us for our annual summer reading challenge. BINGO is back, so now is your chance to get inspired, pick through your to-read list, and flex your competitive muscle.


  • Download a Bingo card from this page and print your own copy. (see the attachment below on this page.)
  • Cross out a square each time you read a book that matches that criteria. One book can count for multiple boxes!
  • Record the title to the corresponding number on the back of the Bingo card.
  • Each BINGO [4 squares in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally] will count as one entry (up to 10 BINGOs per sheet). Five bonus entries are awarded for each blacked-out card (for a total of 15 entries).
  • Bingo cards are due virtually by emailing a picture of your BINGO cards to by September 9, 2022.
