Winter Reading Challenge

Winter Reading Bingo Challenge. Children, teens, and adults. Winter 2022. Mt. Lebanon Public Library

Have Even More Fun Reading by Joining Our Winter Reading Challenge!


Start off the New Year with our Reading Bingo Challenge that will be fun to complete! The challenge runs for 6 weeks from January 10 - February 20 for all ages! Children and teens can pick up their Reading Bingo Cards at the reference desk in the Children’s Library. Adults can pick up their Reading Bingo Cards at the Adult Reference Desk. All ages can download cards from this webpage.

We will have weekly raffles and one grand prize drawing for each age group. To be eligible for our weekly prize drawings, bingo cards must be returned to the library by Sunday of each week. All bingo card entries received throughout the program will be entered into the appropriate grand prize drawing on February 20.

Teens and adults will use the same bingo card for each week but will submit for each new bingo achieved (vertical, horizontal, diagonal, four corners). Children will submit the specified weekly bingo card.      

Our librarians will send out book lists and other fun reading suggestions that will help you meet your Bingo activity goals. So, cozy up with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book this winter and get reading!

The Winter Bingo Card Reading Challenge has been generously funded by the Friends of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.
