Freedom Public Library • Summer Reading 2024

How It Works

Pick up a Summer Reading Bingo Card starting at the Summer Reading Kickoff on June 29th. When you pick up your Bingo card, you’ll receive a certificate for a free kiddie cone at Bobby Sue’s, courtesy of the Friends of the Library!

Keep track of the books you read, and mark off corresponding boxes on your Bingo card as you complete them. Once you have a Bingo on your card, you will receive a gift certificate for $10 to your choice of the following:  

In addition: Preschoolers & Kids will receive a free book for every Bingo they score, up to 3 Bingos.

Saturday, August 3rd is the last day to claim reading prizes. If you arrive at the end of the Summer Reading Program with an uncompleted Bingo card, please turn it in as well! It will help us see how much reading was done during summer reading!
