This summer, libraries across the country are encouraging people to Build a Better World. At ScotLib, we are again hosting a bingo game for Scotch Plains and Fanwood adult cardholders designed to better the world around them in a variety of ways. Here are just a few of the things that you can do with our bingo game:
• Try out library resources such as Flipster or Freegal.
• Find new book ideas by starting a new series, selecting a book from award lists, or attending one of our book discussions.
• Explore the world around you with a museum pass, a documentary, or a travel book to plan an exciting vacation.
• Learn something new with our Great Courses DVDs (examples include The Art of Travel Photography, How to Master Outdoor Cooking, and Our Night Sky).
Once you’ve completed enough activities for a good bingo, stop by the Reference Desk to submit your card. Feel free to pick up another one so you can try even more activities. Let us know which books you’ve enjoyed reading this summer (giving us a short review is also one of the squares!). Have an idea for next year’s bingo game? We’d love to hear that too!
The game ends on August 28, at which point one “good bingo” will be drawn for a summer reading giveaway set, which includes a canvas totebag, travel mug, notepaper cube, notebook, and stylus pen.
However you spend your summer, we hope that you’ll make the library, whether in person or online, a part of it.
