If neither the online game or the game board works for you, you can still play. Starting June 16, write a list of four books you read or library events you attended, add your name, contact information and “Read 4 Life 2021,” then call us, mail it to us or drop it at any Multnomah County library by August 31, 2021. We’ll enter your name into the prize drawings. You can write your entry in any language.

When you complete the game, you can enter your name into a prize drawing for a $50 gift card. There are three types of gift cards: Fred Meyer, Starbucks or Powell’s Books.
