- To play, complete five of the categories on the card in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, or all four of the corner squares.
- You’ll need a library card – if you don’t have one already, sign up at bccls.org/eCard
- Any square that starts “Borrow and…” means you must borrow the book, movie, TV series, magazine, or music album from the library, either in physical or digital format.
- Any square that starts “Read…” can be a book you own – but of course we recommend that you take advantage of the library’s collections!
- Keep track of what you read, watch, and do! When submitting a completed card, email email@example.com with your name, library card number, the squares you completed, and proof of completion.
- For books, movies, magazines, music, TV series, and newspaper articles, tell us the title and author of what you read or watched.
- If you attended on online program, tell us the name of the program.
- If you read aloud to someone, recommended a book, or received a recommendation, tell us the title and author of what was recommended or read.
- If you interacted with us on social media, tell which platform you used.
- If you practiced a language on Rosetta Stone, tell us which language.
- You can submit more than one card if you complete a different horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line.
Completed cards will be entered into a prize raffle!
