Hobby Bingo


It’s National Hobby Month and we’re encouraging you to dive into the wonderful world of hobbies. Besides personal enjoyment, hobbies can give you a boost in other ways:

  1. Stress Management: Hobbies serve as effective stress relievers. Painting, playing a musical instrument, or gardening can give us a break from the pressures of our day-to-day.
  2. Mindfulness: Hobbies help you focus on the moment. Activities like cooking, knitting, or bird-watching encourage us to concentrate and set distractions aside.
  3. Social Connection: Hobbies are great ways to make connections. Joining a book club or sports league can help you meet people with shared interests and foster a sense of community.

How to Participate

  • Pick up a Hobby Bingo sheet in-person at the Poirier or City Centre branch or download one from this Library News article.
  • Complete at least three of the activities listed.
  • Return the paper copy to the Poirier or City Centre branch or send a copy by email to rhoekstra@coqlibrary.ca by February 4, 2024, 11:59 pm PST.

All ages are welcome!

Each of our four Hobby Bingo sheets has a different theme:

Every sheet that you complete and return will count as one entry in our grand prize draws.
