We Have a B.I.N.G.O. Winner!

Dear reader, did you know about our Masterpiece Bingo game? Well, you can pick up a BINGO card from the children's room, and each square contains the title of a book from our "Classics" collection. Cross out books you've already read, and then read enough books to get BINGO (5 in a row). You can read aloud with your family, listen in an audio format, or read independently. Once you've got BINGO, you can claim your prize of a $20 gift certificate to Giordano's Pizza. The contest runs through December 31st.

We celebrated the announcement of our first BINGO winner this week! Mary Bea Halloran claimed her prize and received a special pizza box trophy for being the first winner. Not only did she get five in a row, she filled up half her BINGO card! Mary Bea is an avid reader, and for those of you out there looking for a good book here are two of her recommendations (one from the Classics section, one a more contemporary pick):

Sounder by William Armstrong (Find it at J CLASSICS ARMSTRONG)

Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix (Find it at J FICTION HADDIX)
