Beginning Jan. 2 and running through March 30, Adult Winter Reading Challenge Bingo at Barr Memorial Library consists of a bingo card with 24 categories, including "Suspense or Thriller," "Latin Authors," and "Suggested by the Staff."

Participants have two options to finish the challenge. The first option is to reach a bingo: a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. Participants also have the option to complete a blackout: filling in all 25 squares. A book or author may only be used once per card. Completed bingo cards must be turned in to the library no later than 5 p.m. on March 30.

Prizes will be awarded to the adults who complete the Challenge. An additional prize will be given to those who complete a Blackout. All participants who finish the Winter Challenge Bingo will also be eligible for the grand prize drawing of a tote bag of autographed books.

Participants must be active duty Soldiers, spouses, Family members, retirees, DOD civilians, National Guardsmen or reservists at least 18 years of age and eligible for a regular library account. Limit one entry per person.
