B-I-N-G-O spells summer reading fun beginning June 1

Summer reading programs for everyone — kids, teens and adults — begin June 1 throughout Bellingham and Whatcom County. Visit your local library online or in person to find out more!

Public libraries in Bellingham and throughout Whatcom County have teamed up to provide summer reading challenges for all ages, featuring a popular bingo-card format. Use the bingo card to inspire you to read new titles and keep track of what you’ve read or listened to, and turn it in at your local library. Every child and teen who sets and meets a personal reading goal will receive a book to keep. Adult participants may enter drawings to win fun reading-related prizes.

Bingo cards will be available at all area public library locations June 1 through Aug. 31, 2019. Special summer reading events are scheduled at area libraries as well, including craft fairs, games and much more.
