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 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 2020 Summer Book Bingo board on our website below. Keep track of books you read now through Tuesday, September 8, 2020, 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. For other category suggestions, head to the SAL blog.

Get more ideas on social media, and keep the conversation going, by using the hashtag #BookBingoNW2020.

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! Adult Book Bingo players, turn in your card and you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three grand prizes—including a subscription to the 2020/21 SAL series of your choice! Kids Book Bingo players, turn in your card and you’ll be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $100 gift card to an independent book store.

How do I submit my card for the prize drawing?

  1. Drop off your card (or a copy) at any branch of The Seattle Public Library. (Adult Book Bingo only).
