The Eastern Monroe Public Library invites the community to participate in its second annual "Eat, Shop and Play Bingo".

The big event is a bingo fundraiser for the library where patrons get the chance to support local restaurants and shops in the community as well. To participate, you purchase the five dollar bingo card from the circulation desk. Each card has discount opportunities at multiple local businesses.

"This promotion is going on all summer long, so it gives you two whole months to go explore the Poconos and get out and have some great food, go to some of the wineries, and explore our local stores," Susan Lyons, Library Director, said.

Bingo players must submit their stamped and completed bingo cards to the Hughes Library by September 3rd to be entered into the raffle prize drawing.
