A couple weeks ago my friend Robbie told you about Get Your Summer Read On Day, which was on June 25.

Hi Ellen, Thanks for your question & sorry for the confusion. There are two separate contests going, both using the Bingo card. As the Twitter contest is conducted online, entrants must be 18 or older. So the Tweeted photo of the family should come from a parent's or caregiver's Twitter account. The time frame for the Twitter contest online is shorter - it closes 11:59 pm on January 31. You can use the same Bingo card to enter the contest at your branch. In that case, you'll have to complete every single challenge. You have until February 13 to finish the challenges and submit the bingo card to your branch. The in-branch contest is for those 13 years & younger (but the whole family can complete the challenges together). I hope this helps?
