The York County Public Library is calling all 6th through 12th graders to celebrate this month during TeenTober with a Bingo competition for prizes including a Kindle Fire 7.
“The purpose is to celebrate teens and engage them in the library,” said Michelle Paxton, Youth Services coordinator for York County libraries.
Teens can pick up a bingo card at the Tabb or Yorktown libraries, or print a pdf version.
The tasks on the bingo card challenge teens to discover the library and learn new skills. Show a completed bingo row to someone at the Youth Services desk at either Tabb or York County library location to get an entry in a raffle drawing for a Kindle Fire 7, according to a news release from the library.
TeenTober is an annual event by the American Library Association.
According to the American Library Association, the month “aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services helps teens learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library.”
Raffle entries must be received by Tabb or Yorktown libraries by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31. The winner for the Kindle Fire 7 will be drawn on Nov. 3.
