Reading Bingo begins in 2017!
Challenge yourself to expand your reading selections and find recommendations for many of the squares on your Reading Bingo card by listening to new episodes of Hush.
Every three weeks, join librarian hosts Thad Hartman, Lissa Staley, and Miranda Ericsson with special guests from the library and community. In each interview, the guest makes recommendations for one square from the “Reading Bingo” card. Listeners are encouraged to read along throughout 2017 and mark their own Reading Bingo cards. Use the podcasts, show notes, book displays in the library and book lists in the library catalog to discover what other people are reading and recommending.
If you have questions, comments or suggestions for future topics please comment on our blog post or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
