Eyes down for Book Bingo at North Yorkshire libraries

Avid and aspiring readers of all ages and abilities are being invited to take the Book Bingo challenge at libraries this autumn.

Avid and aspiring readers of all ages and abilities are being invited to take the Book Bingo challenge at libraries this autumn.

Launching as part of North Yorkshire’s Libraries Week celebrations, customers can pick up a free bingo card from Monday 7 October.

To take part, players need to read any library book that fits the various challenges on the card until they complete a line. The 24 challenges range from “read a book that was made into a film” and “read a book with a number in the title”.

After completing their challenges, players can hand the card to the library to be entered into a prize draw to win a book token. Readers can pick up another card and play again.

County Councillor Greg White, Executive Member for Libraries, said: “Whether you have trouble choosing a book from our fantastic range or you haven’t read for some time but would like to get back into it, Book Bingo is for you. Try some authors and genres that are new to you and open up your reading world.”

Book Bingo will run until 4 January 2020. For more information, contact your local library.
