Three Books for the Summer Reading Challenge!

Join us for a community-wide BTHS Summer Reading Challenge Bingo.

Sponsored by the BTHS Library, the PA, and Mr. Newman!

The Brooklyn Tech community--students, staff, and parents--can participate by reading at least three books in special categories this summer.  At the end of the summer, winners in each group will be selected by raffle for Brooklyn Tech merch!

Sign up  to participate by July 15th to get your online bingo board submission form. Then read three books in adjacent squares (vertically, horizontally, diagonally, or in an L shape). 

  • The challenge starts on June 20th and goes until Labor Day, September 2nd.

  • Books included should be started and completed in this timeframe.

  • One book can only count for one category, even though it may fit in many!  And each book can only be used in one bingo submission.  

  • Any YA or adult books qualify. 

  • You may submit up to three completed bingo boards online for our drawing for Brooklyn Tech merch by September 2nd. Each board must represent three unique books.

  • This is an initiative to encourage reading and community.  Please interpret the rules the best you can with that aim in mind!

Examples of completed boards : 

Each line represents three unique books in three categories, or read all 9 for a bonus submission:

Access to Books: Students and staff, we invite you to check out ebooks and audiobooks through Brooklyn Tech’s eLibrary app Sora. Incoming 9th graders should have access when DOE updates their school in the system mid-summer.

Check out our amazing collection on Sora and see the Summer Reading list for each grade level:

Additionally, as a New Yorker, you can get all library cards from all three public library systems, and enjoy your freedom to read print books, ebooks, and audiobooks.
