How does the Winter Reading Program for Adults work?

Spend January and February reading great books and exploring the library’s databases like Rosetta Stone, Zinio or Hoopla. Fill in the Bingo Card with the titles and authors of what you read or the sessions you tried online. Return your completed Bingo Card to any CCPL branch when you get Bingo vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Complete as many Bingo Cards as you want, but each book title or database session can only be used once. Download the Bingo Card by clicking Here.
