It is once again time for Winter Bingo! Your child can earn a free book just for completing fun activities over winter break. There are two Bingo cards available: one for children in grades K-5, and one for pre-readers and their caregivers. On the K-5 card are activities that include “Splash in a puddle,” “Tell a story” and my favorite: “Tell a librarian what to read.” The pre-reader card includes a variety of early literacy activities like “Build with blocks” or “Cuddle while you read.” Just do five activities in a row and you have B-I-N-G-O. Winter Bingo starts December 17, 2016 and ends January 14, 2017. Pick your cards up at any Oakland Public Library or just print your own right now!
