 Adult Summer Reading Bingo - finishes on Wednesday

Adult Summer Reading Bingo posterRemember to come in and get your lines stamped off and collect your library vouchers by 28 January.  All cards with at least 20 out of 25 squares completed must be handed in by 7pm Wednesday 28 January to be eligible for the draw for the iPad Mini.

Also remember to have a go at submitting a review to earn a bonus voucher.  We’ve had some excellent reviews through and will be posting some of these on our blog soon.  One participant has gone the whole hog and set up her own blog to record her bingo reading journey!

If you haven’t picked up a bingo card yet, there may still be time – you can use any book that fits the categories that you have read since 1 December 2014.  Click here for full details of the adults’ challenge.
