Fizz Boom Read: Summer Fun for Teens!

Teen-SL-SRP2014-FizzBoom

Summer Reading for Teens (ages 12-18)

Teens,  read and discover this summer with Summer Reading Bingo! You will have the chance to explore different kinds of books and authors. When you sign up, you get a “Bingo Card” with different genres of books to read and various  library-related activities.

How it works:

  1. Do the activities and fill in the boxes.
  2. When you have 5 in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) bring your card to the library.
  3. For each row you fill you will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire (courtesy of Friends of the Elkhart Public Library).
  4. That’s not all! — Fill in 3 rows to finish the card! Finish up to 3 cards total. (That’s a lot of prizes, and a lot of entries for the grand prize!)
