Book Bingo

Summer Book Bingo

Every summer, we partner with The Seattle Public Library to create a Summer Book Bingo card as part of our free summer reading program. Adults, teens, and kids play along from May – September to be entered in a chance to win fabulous prizes.

How to Play

How do I play?

Keep track of books you read from now through Tuesday, September 3, 2024 by writing the title and author in the matching square. Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person.

There are two ways to win:

BINGO: Complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line! Turn in your card and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a gift card to an independent book store (via a generous donation from The Friends of The Seattle Public Library).

BLACKOUT: Complete all 25 squares! Turn in your card and you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three grand prizes—including a subscription to the 2024/25 SAL series of your choice.

How do I submit my card for the prize drawing?

Adult and Teen Book Bingo Submission Instructions

Submit the front and back of your completed adult card (with either a bingo or blackout) in only one of the following ways:

1. Drop off your card (or a copy of the front and back) at any branch of The Seattle Public Library.

2. Complete the submission form at www.spl.org/BookBingo.

ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY 6 P.M. ON TUESDAY, SEPT. 5, 2023. Social media submissions no longer accepted. Please do not submit your card more than once.
