Adult Summer Reading Bingo Begins!

The reading game for children has been a staple of summers at the Library for years — but why should the kids have all the fun? The Library also has a summer reading game for adults and teens 9th grade and up. Here’s how to play:
1. Stop by the reference desk anytime to register and pick up a BINGO type card (see above). Everyone who registers will receive a Pelham Library drink Koozie, while supplies last.
2. Write down the titles you read this summer between June and Labor Day, in the appropriate boxes and try to get a BINGO by completing a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line. You may not enter the same title in more than one box, and — again — you may not write in books you’ve read previously.
3. Once you have gotten a BINGO, turn in your completed card to the Librarian at the Reference Desk and discuss the books you have read. The deadline to turn in your card is Tuesday, September 3 in order to enter the raffle for a  grand prize — a Kindle E-reader! Second prize is a 40-DVD set of all 236 episodes of the beloved TV show, Friends.
Questions? Call Managing Librarian Augusta Turner at 914-813-1216.

BINGO prizes come courtesy of The Friends of the Town of Pelham Public Library.

Third Grade Book Club: Flipped by Wendelin van Draanen
Town of Pelham Public Library, Pelham NY

This romantic comedy starts when Bryce and Juli are in second grade, and continues in eighth grade. At first, Juli is the one who is taken with Bryce, but things flip in eighth grade when Bryce becomes interested in Juli, just when Juli is beginning to wonder if Bryce is quite what she thought he was.
