Adult Summer Reading 2019



Read books, write reviews, play book bingo and be entered for prizes! Stop by the Reference Desk to sign up.

Step 1 - Register

Registration is informal so write your first name across the provided Saturn Image to signify the beginning of our summer reading theme, A Universe of Stories.  Place the completed Saturn in the fishbowl at the registration station by the Reference Desk.  Once you've registered, take a goodie bag and choose one free book.

Step 2 - Read

Read and listen to what you want all summer long.  If you need help finding fun and interesting titles come see a librarian or visit NoveList for read alikes!  Both physical and electronic media are allowed for reviews and bingo.

Step 3 - Respond

To enter drawings for prizes, return your completed book review forms to the review box by the Reference Desk.  To be entered in an additional grand prize drawing, complete the Universe of Stories Bingo card and return it to the entry box near the Reference Desk, or share your completed entries on Facebook or Twitter.  Post a picture on our wall with #UniverseofStories or via Twitter @Haverfordlib #UniverseofStories

Step 4 - Win

Weekly Prizes - Five book reviews are drawn every Friday during summer reading.  Winners will be notified by the phone or email address left on the review form.  The weekly prizes include gift cards and prizes that fit the Universe of Stories theme.

Grand Prizes - There will be 2-3 grand prizes that will be drawn at the end of Summer Reading.  Every completed book review or bingo card is 1 entry and every blackout bingo card (all squares filled) is 5 entries.

Fine Print

  • Submit as many book review forms as you'd like to improve your chances of winning the weekly drawings.
  • However, we are only accepting one bingo card entry per person.
  • You are on your honor to read books before adding them to your Libraries Rock Bingo card or book review form.  No cheating!
