To celebrate National Libraries Week we are launching our newest library challenge called Book Bingo.
You will need to read a selection of books from different genres, in different formats (such as eBooks and eAudiobooks), and complete several tasks.
Once you've completed the tasks, submit your entry to be in with a chance of winning a Samsung Galaxy tablet, gifted by Overdrive. You can download and borrow eBooks with Overdrive’s Libby app
How to play
Request a Book Bingo card from your local library and collect it during Select and Collect opening times or download and print a copy at home:
Cross off the corresponding square when you have borrowed and read the book or completed each task.
Tell us what you have read on the back of the card.
Complete all squares to get a full house and be in with a chance of winning the prize.
Rules, terms and conditions
Only 1 entry allowed per person. Multiple entries will be disqualified.
You must complete all 9 squares and tell us what you have read on the back of the form. Library staff may ask you about this.
Fill out the contact details on the back of this card, otherwise we will not be able to contact you if you win.
We will draw a winner at random from all entries received. Including entries from all age groups. We will notify the winner after the closing date.
The competition closes at 11.59pm on Saturday 5 December 2020
