Libraries Rock for Adults this summer! Adults are invited to play Book Bingo at the Bellaire Public Library. Each person who signs up will receive a “Libraries Rock” tote bag and a Chipotle coupon. Here’s how it works: Once you register you will receive a bingo card. Instead of numbers, this card is filled in by reading books from a variety of genres, or attending a library program. To hit BINGO, read and record books from FIVE categories to create a row, column, or diagonal line. Once you complete a BINGO, bring your card to the library and receive a prize. Each completed BINGO card will be entered for the grand prize drawing held on July 27th. All entries must be received by noon on that day to be eligible.
