Kids Book Bingo at the Library
Youth Services Librarian Lanora Melillo of the Secaucus Public Library and Business Resource Center invites youths, ages 5-10, to play the “literary version” of bingo on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m.
“Instead of numbered cards, this game will feature favorite children’s authors, book characters, and book titles from classic to newly popular,” she said. “Youths will have a chance to win bookmarks and other various prizes. Each participant will go home with a list of the books used on the boards and their synopses.”
For additional information regarding this program, please visit the library’s website at http://secaucus.bccls.org or e-mail Melillo at email@example.com.
