WINCHENDON — If you’re looking for something entertaining to do this month, then join the Beals Memorial Library for a fun night celebrating the freedom to read with a game of Banned Book Bingo!

On Wednesday, Sept. 29th, at 6 p.m., the library will be hosting Banned Book Bingo in the library auditorium, a fun twist on the classic game that celebrates the most frequently banned and challenged books of the last decade. The winner of each round will receive a banned book as a prize. All prizes have been selected by the library staff from among the top 100 Most Frequently Banned and Challenged Books: 2010-2019, a list compiled by the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom. This event is open to both teens and adults. All participants must wear masks while inside the library.

The Beals Memorial Library is located at 50 Pleasant Street in Winchendon. For more information, contact the library at 978-297-0300 or visit the library’s website at bealslibrary.org.
