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 and kids play along from May – September to be entered in a chance to win fabulous prizes.

How to Play

How do I play?

Download a 2019 Summer Book Bingo board on our website below. Keep track of books you read from May 14 through September 3, 2019, 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.

Adult Book Bingo is for players 18 and older, and Kids Book Bingo is for players 17 and under.

I need suggestions for squares!

Ask a Seattle Public librarian for recommendations! Stop by any branch or go to www.spl.org/yournext5.

For “SAL speaker” and many other categories, see our current line-up of SAL speakers, and head to the Events Archive for even more ideas.

Get more ideas on social media, and keep the conversation going, by using the hashtag #BookBingoNW2019.

How do I win? And what are the prizes?

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 bookstore.

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 2019/20 SAL series of your choice!

How do I submit my card for the prize drawing?

Submit your completed card (with either a bingo or a blackout) in one of the following ways:

  1. Drop off your card (or a copy) at any branch of The Seattle Public Library.
  2. Mail your card (or a copy) to Seattle Arts & Lectures, 340 15th Ave E., Suite 301, Seattle, WA 98112.
  3. Post a photo of your completed card to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Be sure to tag #BookBingoNW2019.

Entries must be received by 6 PM on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.
