Library's Summer "Book Bingo" Starts Today

Seattle Public Library's Adult Summer Reading Program, for readers 15 and older, launched today with the fourth annual Summer Book Bingo which runs through September 4th.  
Pick up a Bingo Card at the  Northeast Branch  (6801 35th Avenue NE) or at any other neighborhood library or download a PDF.
Fill in a Bingo Card, by marking an entire row or all 25 squares with the titles and authors of the books you've read, and drop it any branch library, mail it to SAL, 340 15th Ave. E., Suite 301, Seattle, WA 98112, or by posting a photo using #BookBingoNW2017, on Facebook (@SeattlePublicLibrary @SeattleArtsAndLectures), Instagram (@seattleartsandlectures @seattlepubliclibrary) or Twitter (@SeaArtsLectures @SPLBuzzand, and have a chance to win a prize.
