Yakima Valley Libraries welcomes the community to join our annual Winter Reading Challenge. From January 1st through April 1st, we invite you to grab a Bingo game card, READ, mark off the categories to complete a Bingo or a blackout, and enter to win a variety of prizes. Plus, everyone who returns a completed game card will earn a collectible Winter Reading Challenge pin or keychain.
See complete challenge rules below.
This year, for the first time, kids and teens are invited to participate in the Winter Reading Challenge under the title Winter Adventure. Visit this link for game rules.
HOW TO PLAY BOOK BINGO
- Visit a library near you, or the Bookmobile, and request a Book Bingo card OR go to ‘Printable Game Cards’ in the dropdown menu below to print your card(s) at home.
- READ and work toward a Bingo or blackout by filling in book titles on your game card.
- To be entered into the Winter Reading Challenge drawing, return your completed game card to one of our 16 library locations or the Bookmobile by Monday, April 1, 2024.
Please see complete drawing entry instructions in the dropdown menu below.
THE FINE PRINT: You are on your honor to read books before adding them to your Winter Reading Challenge Bingo card. Cheating, skimming, or just reading reviews online will invoke bad winter karma which may include sniffles, lack of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, or losing your mittens.
