Play Library BINGO to Celebrate Libraries, April 5-30

Celebrate National Library Week, April 4-10, 2021, by playing Library Bingo. Adults and teens are invited to read, connect with the community, and discover new experiences. Complete five consecutive squares (across, down or diagonal) and return the board to the library to enter a raffle drawing.

Participants may download an English or Spanish bingo board beginning Monday, April 5 on the Livermore Public Library website, or pick one up at the Civic Center Library to start playing. They can also pick up a bingo board through the library’s curbside service. Participants will receive a colorful bookmark with their bingo board.

Some of the Library Bingo squares are reading related, others encourage connecting with the community and still others focus on discovery. Examples include reading a banned book, visiting a local park, suggesting a book to a friend, checking out the night sky, and trying a new recipe.

Drop off a completed bingo board in the book return boxes outside Civic Center, Rincon, or Springtown Branch Library to be entered into a raffle. Participants can also drop off their completed game board in person at the Civic Center Library or take a picture of their completed bingo board and email it to lib@livermore.lib.ca.us. The last day to submit a bingo board for the drawing is Friday, April 30, 2021. Four lucky winners will be randomly selected and contacted by phone during the first week of May. Winners will receive goodie bags filled with fabulous prizes!

First sponsored by the American Library Association in 1958, National Library Week takes place each April and is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians, promote library use, and encourage community support. The theme of this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to Your Library.” Library Bingo exemplifies the mission of the Livermore Public Library, inspiring experiences to support personal growth, enhance quality of life, and build community in Livermore.

Library Bingo is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Livermore Library. To learn more about this program and other events, call 925-373-5505.
