The Marshall Public Library’s Adult Summer Library BINGO Challenge is coming to an end August 15, 2009. This challenge was more than just reading books. The challenges included tasks like returning materials on time, posting a comment on the Library’s blog, and even checking out a new book. Each square on the bingo card had a different challenge. As with regular bingo, participants had to complete five challenges in a row for bingo. A completed bingo earned an entry in the prize drawing. A blackout, all five rows completed, earned five additional entries in the drawing. The Library would like to thank the local businesses who made prizes possible for the drawing. Prizes include donations from: Mystique Theater, Sandpiper, Perkins, Mama Inez, and Town and Country Gardens.
For those who missed the BINGO Challenge this year, watch for next summer’s Adult Summer Challenge at the Marshall Public Library, along with summer reading programs for children and teens. For more information about this or other Library programs and activities, call 232-1263.
