August 2017

This summer, we will be using a Bingo sheet to keep track of progress in the Summer Reading Program.  It looks like this:

Get one Bingo and you get a cool pair of ear buds with a phone stand. Get two Bingos and you get the book of your choice.  If you manage to black out the card by the end of the Summer Reading Program (August 11th), then you get a gift card (either Roast and Toast or McLean & Eakin) or a bowling pass to Northern Lights!!!

Signing up for the Summer Reading Program is easy! You can sign up at Petoskey Downtown Open House on June 2nd, or just come down to the Teen Desk and the Teen Librarian will give you a bingo sheet!
