Adult Summer Reading Program
READ BOOKS, WIN PRIZES! JUNE 14 – SEPTEMBER 9, 2013
Join us this summer for San Rafael Public Library’s Adult Summer Reading Program, “Bookshelf Bingo!” If you read just one book this summer, then you can win a prize. Read more and you can earn a nifty new book bag and enter raffles for grand prizes donated by businesses located in San Rafael.
HOW IT WORKS:
Visit the San Rafael Public Library to register and receive your Bookshelf Bingo card. You can also print a copy:
- You must have a valid San Rafael Public or other MARINet library card to participate.
- You may only count one square per book. Fill in the title of the item you finished and go to the Reference Desk to get your squares marked off.
- Complete five squares in a row to make a Bingo!
- You may start a second card only after fully completing your first card.
To complete the square asking you to write a book review, pick up a paper form at the Reference Desk or share your review online on the Adult Summer Reading book review blog.
Ask at the Reference Desk for help finding books to complete your bingo card. We have tons of suggested reads on our Adult Book Lists page. Below are lists, updated or newly created this year, matching the bingo squares:
Award-winners: Fiction (pdf) | Mystery (pdf) | Science Fiction | More Awards
Book Club Books (opens a legal-sized pdf document)
Classic Fiction (pdf) | Best 100 (pdf)
Destination Books: Cuba | London | Paris
Historical Books also see World War I Reads
Mystery (takes you to all book lists, click Jump to: Mystery)

First completed square = A groovy San Rafael Public Library mood pencil
