It’s Bingo time!!

Libraries and bingo. Not two things you usually associate guy

But we think it’s a perfect combination. It lets people win prizes while learning more about all the materials and many great services Boyd County Public Library offers.

So, all during February, we play Library Bingo – and give prizes to everyone who gets “five in a row.”

It’s simple to play: just complete the library “task” listed on the square, and have it initialed by a staff member.  You can “bingo” vertically, horizontally or diagonally. After you do, take your card to a staff member and select your prize. Then get another card and start again. Simple, right?

Prizes include pens, pencils, magnets, ear buds, water bottles, leashes, READ lanyards, key chains and book lights. There is no limit to the amount of times you can win.

So, what exactly is on a Library bingo card? There’s a free space, of course, but instead of letters and numbers, it’s full of fun and cool stuff you can do at BCPL. Some will take just a second or two; others a bit longer.

It’s a win-win situation. Now, when you do all your regular library “stuff” (and probably discover a few things you weren’t aware of along the way), we will reward you with freebies. What could be better?

Here’s a sampling of the Library Bingo squares:

  • Listen to an audio book
  • Use the suggestion board at the Main Branch
  • Pick up a tax form
  • “Like” BCPL on Facebook
  • Request an item for the library collection
  • Print from a computer
  • Attend a library program
  • Use a database
  • Make an Interlibrary Loan request
  • Read an e-Book
  • Download music from Freegal
  • Visit Youth Services (and spin the pirate wheel or say hi to the fish while you are there)
  • Pick up a flyer
  • Return an item in the book drop.
  • Use Mango Languages

There’s also the “Say Hi to Barb” square, which means you need to give a greeting to Barb Biggs, our new Branch Manager. You can find her most days at the Kyova Branch, and after the Catlettsburg Branch reopens on Feb. 14, she will be working there, too.

Bingo cards are available through Feb. 28.
