Join Us for Book Bingo on October 26

Just in time for Halloween, you can enjoy some book tricks and treats featuring New York Times best-selling authors at our free book bingo event on Tuesday, October 26 from 3pm to 4:30pm.

This virtual event is open to Maricopa County residents, and features authors Matt Coyle, Nicola Harrison, Greta Kelly, Laura Morelli, Sarah Warburton, and Karen White. While you enjoy the authors speak about their work, you’ll also be marking off key words on the bingo card supplied on your phone.

Just like in regular bingo, participants will compete to cover five squares in a row. Winners will receive free copies of the authors’ books.

To register for this event, please visit https://adventuresbythebook.com/event/book-bingo-trick-treat-2021/ and scroll down to where it says “Tickets.” You’ll receive a Zoom link and bingo card the week of the event from Adventures By the Book.

Avid readers should also consider becoming a Friends member to join our monthly book club discussions, which are available at the Contributing Friend level and above.

Friends Raise Funds via 1st Bank Good Week

The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library participated in 1st Bank’s annual Good Week on November 14 to raise money for the Scottsdale Heritage Connection (SHC).

Good Week provided free lunches at its branches in Gilbert and Scottsdale all week from local restaurants. The Friends partnered with Cold Beer and Cheeseburgers, which offered burgers, macaroni and cheese and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Friends were able to promote the SHC and raise money from interested donors. The event raised over $100 toward the SHC project.

Thank you to 1st Bank for providing this platform to promote the preservation of Scottsdale’s history.
