Ponte Vedra Branch Library Reference Librarian Joan Hakala has been hostingÂ throughout the year for several yearsÂ very popular Bingo for Books for AdultsÂ programs for patrons which allow book lovers the opportunity to win brand-new adult fiction and non-fiction books, nosh on yummy refreshments, and hob-nob with new and old friends a like. These programs have quite the following! But Joan decided – with the help of Seymours Bookstore (our used bookstore inside our library expertly run by the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach BranchÂ Library) – to change it up a bit and host theÂ first-ever Bingo for BUCKS for Adults.
Fifteen adults eagerly attended for the opportunity to win Seymours Bucks granting them the opportunity to shop for free in ther little bookstore in the library – the only used bookstore in Ponte Vedra Beach. Hakala also stepped it up into the 21st century by projecting Bingo up onto the big screen for all to see and hear.
