Teen Book Bingo
Need help with a BINGO category? Use a link below to see what is available at the Buckingham Library or Farmville Library. This will link you to our online catalog. You can then reserve the book or save it for later using your library card.
- Only participants ages 13-18 are eligible for prizes.
- You must finish reading each title during the challenge time – don’t list a book you’ve read in the past.
- Books for this challenge may come from this library, your school’s library, or any other source.
- When you finish a book, fill in the title and dates in each square that applies to the book.
- Each BINGO you complete = one prize entry for you!
- You may complete as many BINGOs on one card as you would like – just remember to keep track of your card. After you finish BINGO(s), fold this sheet in half and put it in the box at the service desk. If you want to earn more chances to win, pick up another card to finish more BINGOs.
- Fill out your information on the bottom of the page so that we can call you if you win a prize.
- Double-dipping for book titles is allowed! For example, Twilight would count as a “Book with a Female Protagonist” and “A Book Set in the U.S.” You may only count a book for up to two categories.
- Some of the squares involve interacting with your library – don’t be afraid to talk to the staff!
- Only standard, 5-square BINGOs will earn you an entry. This includes horizontal, vertical, and diagonal.
