Dublin Library’s Winter Reading Game is happening now through January 15. There are two separate game boards, one for children and one for adults (including teens). Stop by the Dublin Library to request a game board, available at the reference desk.
How to Play the Children’s Game
The children’s winter reading challenge is called Race the Yeti, and is for kids up through middle school, although we’re not limiting it!
Kids will color one footprint on the board for every 20 minutes they read (or are read to). When they reach the snowflakes (there are 3), they’ll earn a prize.
When kids finish the third snowflake, they’ve completed the game and can fill out a slip to be entered into the drawing for a yeti stuffie.
Prize 1: Slime, and a tree cut out with their name for the wall
Prize 2: Paratrooper penguin
Prize 3: Grab bag (pencil, sticker, etc.) and an entry slip for the drawing
How to Play the Adult Game
This year Dublin Library is premiering our first Adult Winter Bingo! Teens can also play, if they want. It’s basically a bingo card to complete different types of books and library-related activities. Four squares in a row make a bingo, but folks can get a prize for just doing one square!
The Adult game boards have a prize tracker on the back to keep track of prizes earned.
First square: Library-branded Pen or Pencil
First bingo: A Pin OR a bookmark, AND a raffle ticket for one of the bingo prizes
Each additional bingo: Another raffle ticket
Last bingo (blackout of the game board): Another Pin OR bookmark, AND a blackout drawing ticket*
*There is just one blackout prize, a $40 gift certificate to our local Towne Center Books.
This is a sample of the Children’s and Adult game boards, stop by the Dublin Library to get your game board!
We’re happy to provide recommended reading lists for the winter or to answer any questions you have about the Winter Reading Game.
