Adult Summer Breathing Program: Take a Breath of Fresh Air

 

Deadline Extended Until September 4!

As Rhode Island expands its reopening, we all could use some time to reflect, stretch, and get outside under the blue sky. We’re taking our annual Adult Summer Reading Program and turning it into a Summer Breathing Program to encourage our patrons to safely venture forth after several weeks of confinement. 

To participate, simply download a Bingo card and play along. We’ve compiled a unique range of indoor and outdoor activities so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. You even have 3 different Bingo cards to choose from.

Whichever indoor or outdoor activities you decide to do, please remember to always practice social distancing, wear masks in public, wash or sanitize your hands frequently, and stay home if you are sick!

HOW TO PLAY

  • Download and print a Bingo card. We have three versions to choose from. Print as many as you like.
  • Complete any five activities in a row in any direction by putting an X on each completed activity
  • Completed Bingo cards must be received by the extended Friday, September 4, 2020 deadline
  • Winning entries will be drawn by mid-September and winners notified shortly thereafter

HOW TO SUBMIT COMPLETED BINGO CARDS
