Escape the Ordinary: Adult Summer Reading & Activities

SL-SRP2015-Adult-4

Grownups, we have a Summer Reading Program for you, too! Play Superhero Bingo, and be the hero for your community or a child! Each square on your bingo card is paired with a type of book, library service, or something you can do to be a hero. Explore different books and authors, and participate in fun, interesting library activities! Play the game by reading, attending programs, using library services, and serving others. Prizes will be given for each completed Bingo card; then one grand prize at the end of summer.

Superhero Bingo

  • Pick up a Superhero Bingo card at any EPL location.
  • When you read a book or complete an activity, enter it on your card.
  • Once you have 5 in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) turn in your card for a prize.
  • The fun isn’t over, yet! Get another card and do it again!
  • But wait! There’s more! Every bingo card you turn in is also an entry for our end-of-summer grand prize drawing. Don’t feel like playing bingo? We will also have a different activity sheet each week. Correctly completing one of these also enters you in the grand prize drawing.
