Ready, set, read! Starting this week, the Haverhill Public Library kicks off a kid-friendly winter reading challenge, with youth who complete a literacy Bingo board eligible to win prizes. Challenges include reading a book with a one-word title, or paging through a comic book, for example.

Once children read five different types of books to earn a BINGO, the Library will issue a raffle ticket for a prize drawing that takes place on March 1. Patrons who read nine books receive an additional raffle ticket.

The contest runs through Feb. 28 and more information is available through the Children’s Room at the 99 Main St. library.
