Sanibel Public Library has kicked off summer Book Bingo—a self-directed reading challenge for adults, with opportunities for prizes.

Each square represents a different category chosen by Library staff. Participants will fill appropriate squares as they read books throughout the summer. Book titles can be used only once per Bingo card.

Pick up your Book Bingo card at the service desks, or download it from the Library’s website at:

Recommendation reading for the Bingo challenge can be picked up from the book display near the east service desk. Turn in your Bingo card by Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
