You are SO CLOSE to getting a free book! All you have to do is grab one of the Bingo cards at the Library or download one from our website. After you have the Bingo card, read six books that match the categories on the card (i.e. graphic novel, mystery or horror, your choice, the past, etc.). You just have to make a straight or diagonal line on the card by reading books that match the corresponding bingo squares. Fill in the titles on the back of the card and turn the card in to the information desk at the Library for your free book!

Before you start feeling grumpy that you don’t get to pick what you read, most lines have at least two squares that are “your choice,” so you can read whatever you please.

Since there are *so many* choices (36, to be exact), I thought I’d help you out and give you suggestions for every square. Click on the name of the category to read a blog post about the title. Click on the book title to place a request. The “your choice” squares are filled with my personal favorite YA titles. The “friend’s choice” square was picked by your friend and teen librarian, Lauren. The book “on any library list” is from
