The Morrill Memorial Library invites you to Hibernate with a Book this winter! You know you’ll be cuddling up with a few good books, so why not have a chance to win a prize with Reader’s BINGO?
Reader’s BINGO is open to everyone high school-aged or older. Any books you finish this winter can be included on your BINGO sheet, with each book counting for a single square. Don’t worry, audiobooks and graphic novels definitely count.
BINGO goes from December 2016 through March 10, 2017.
Each completed BINGO row equals one entry for our prize drawings. Gift Certificate prizes have generously been provided by the local sponsors listed below.
Download BINGO sheets below, or pick them up in the library. BINGO sheets can be submitted to Nancy Ling in Outreach or to Liz Reed in Reference. Turn them in even if you’ve only completed one or two rows – you might win! Sheets must be returned by noon on Friday March 10.

Happy 2-year anniversary, Titles on Tap! Our book for February will be the plot-driven novel “Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter” by Tom Franklin. This gritty Southern mystery set in Mississippi was both nominated for and won numerous crime fiction awards. Copies of the book and audiobook are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 2/28 @ 7:30 pm!
Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.
