Freedom Public Library • Summer Reading 2023
How It Works
Pick up a Summer Reading Bingo Card starting at the Summer Reading Kickoff on June 24th. When you pick up your Bingo card, you’ll receive a certificate for a free kiddie cone at Bobby Sue’s, courtesy of the Friends of the Library!
Keep track of the books you read, and mark off corresponding boxes on your Bingo card as you complete them. Once you have a Bingo on your card, you will receive a gift certificate for $10 to your choice of the following:
- Kids will receive a free book for every Bingo they score, up to 3 Bingos. Get 2 books for Bingos scored using just the outer boxes.
- Preschoolers will receive a free book for every Bingo they score, up to 3 Bingos. Get 2 books for Bingos scored using just the outer boxes.
Saturday, August 5th is the last day to claim reading prizes. If you arrive at the end of the Summer Reading Program with an uncompleted Bingo card, please turn it in as well! It will help us see how much reading was done during summer reading!
You’ll have from June 24th – July 15th to submit a design for this year’s Bookmark Contest, based on the theme of “All Together Now.” Pick up an entry form at the Library, or download one here. Winners will be chosen the following week, and we should have bookmarks ready for Old Home Week! Stop by and grab your favorite, or get a complete set of this year’s winners!
|The sticker poster will be over by the entrance to the Children’s Room. Feel free to add stickers any time you visit the Library. Make sure to check for a letter on poster before choosing your stickers!
