From the 1st of September, 25 Book Types will be listed on the Bookshelf Bingo event on our Facebook page.

To play you will need to take a picture of a book from your bookshelf and post it with a brief comment under the Book Type that matches. The aim is to be the first to get two rows of five Book Type matches – the problem is that we are the only ones with the bingo grid. Keep playing until we announce who has been the first to complete 2 rows of 5 (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) or complete all 25 Book Type matches for your chance to go in the draw for a small prize.

This event will go live on the 1st of September on the Burnie Library Facebook page.
