Summer Reading Game

Every summer, GPPL offers a Summer Reading Game designed to keep teens reading over the summer.

Monday, July 1 to Saturday, August 24

All teens 13 and 18 are welcome to participate. No registration required.

How to Play

This year teens will be challenged to a book bingo! For every book you read this summer, your name will be entered into a weekly draw. If the book you read also fills in a spot on your bingo card, you will be given an extra entry into the weekly prize.

When you finish a book, fill out a ballot and enter it into the weekly prize draw. The ballot box will be located on the Shipwrecked display in front of the stairs. 

If you can't make it into GPPL, email the following information to targ@gppl.ca

  1. Name
  2. Phone Number
  3. Title of Book
  4. Author of Book
  5. Date Finished
  6. Which category your book fills on your bingo card
  7. Review (Optional)

Prizes

Everytime you finish a book and submit a ballot you receive one entry into the weekly prize draw. Weekly prizes will be various $25 giftcards. Draws will take place every Tuesday from July 8 to August 27. Winners will be notified by phone.

Bonus Ballots

Bonus ballots can be earned in two ways:

  • Including a review of the book with your ballot. These reviews will be posted to our Goodreads account
  • Reading a book that fills a spot on your bingo card
  • Earning a ‘bingo’ on your card will earn you a teen book from our prize collection. Bingos must be verified by GPPL staff

Kyla, our Teen and Adult Reading Game Coordinator will enter bonus ballots for you. Displays will be set up each week, and booklists will be available on these displays.
