‘Cold Turkey’ Bingo Challenge

Inspired by the Thanksgiving holiday, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School were presented with the ‘Cold Turkey’ Bingo Challenge on Nov. 12, encouraging them to turn off their electronic devices and engage in reading and physical activities instead.

Prior to presenting the challenge, Harborfields Public Library Head of Children Services Patricia Moisan read students a classic Thanksgiving storybook, “'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving” by Dav Pilkey. Following the story, Ms. Moisan explained the guidelines and requirements for completing the ‘Cold Turkey’ Bingo Challenge.

A strong advocate of the challenge, Ms. Mosian said, “It’s really about getting back to basics. We want to encourage children to get back to reading and finding time to come to the library to learn about different books.”
