Summer Reading 2024

Adult Summer Reading

The Adult Summer Reading Program takes place June 1 through August 31! Sign up in person at any one of our branches to receive a Summer Reading sticker while supplies last. You may also sign up online at bpl.org/bingo, where you may also fill out, download, and print your bingo card.

The available cards include the regular Bingo Challenge with reading and activity squares, the Read More bingo card without activity squares, and the regular bingo card in Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, and Haitian Creole.
