Winter Reading Bingo is a brand-new program at the Warren Public Library this year!  Stop by any of our four branches to pick up your bingo sheet. The sheets are conveniently available through curbside pickup, and can be obtained when you stop by for your books and other library items. You can also print a sheet below.  Participate in some fun literary challenges to get a bingo, and return your completed sheet to the nearest Warren Public Library branch.

Currently, sheets may be returned through the drop box at each location.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns through curbside pickup. We apologize for the inconvenience.  All completed sheets will be entered in a drawing to win a sweet treat! There are sheets available for kids, teens, and adults—fun for the whole family!
