Every summer, Seattle Arts and Lectures partners with The Seattle Public Library to create a Summer Book Bingo card as part of our free summer reading program. Adults and kids play along from May – September to be entered in a chance to win fabulous prizes.
2021 Summer Book Bingo has begun! Download a card below to inspire and challenge your reading habits now through Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
Keep track of books you read by writing the title and author in the matching square. Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person.
Adult Book Bingo is for players 18 and older, and Kids Book Bingo is for players 17 and under.
Ask a QABC bookseller or a Seattle Public librarian for recommendations!
For “SAL speaker” and many other categories, see our current line-up of SAL speakers, and head to the Events Archive at the bottom of that page for even more ideas.
Get more ideas on social media—and keep the conversation going—by using the hashtag #BookBingoNW2021.
Bingo: Complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line! Turn in your card, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a gift card to an independent bookstore.
Blackout: Complete all 25 squares! Adult Book Bingo players, turn in your card and you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three grand prizes—including a subscription to the SAL series of your choice! Kids Book Bingo players, turn in your card and you’ll be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $100 gift card to an independent book store.
