The New Author Blackout BINGO game for children continues through Feb. 28. BINGO cards are available at the Checkout Desk in the children’s library. There are two age groups for the game.
For 8 to 12 year-olds, the game encourages them to read books by authors they have not read before. Participants will receive prizes and raffle tickets for a grand prize for completing rows or blacking out their BINGO cards with titles from authors they have not previously read.
There is also a card for participants who are age 7 and younger with similar prize opportunities. The younger readers are encouraged to try new authors, but are not required to do so to participate in the game.
