Bunco players of all skill levels are invited to come out for a night of dice rollin’ fun to help raise money for books! Bunco for Books is a fundraiser hosted by the Friends of the Crown Point Library. Proceeds go towards the purchase of books and other supplies to support the Crown Point Library’s literacy outreach efforts including Book Babies, book discussion groups, and more.
The event will take place at the Crown Point Community Library on Friday, March 13 from 6 – 9 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person or $30 for Friends members and include your game entry, dinner (Aurelio’s Pizza) and a door prize ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the Crown Point Library, cash or check payable to the Friends.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., dinner served at 6 p.m. and the first “roll” beginning at 7 p.m. Bunco is an easy-to-learn game! All you need to do is roll the dice and keep score. Rules and directions will be available on every table, so no prior experience is necessary.

To enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library. To raise funds to support library programs, services and to help fund items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget.
The Friends of the Crown Point Community Library have supported special programs and help to purchase items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget. They have made it their mission to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
When you join us, you’ll:
- Sponsor programs and literacy initiatives for adults, children, and teens

Many Friends volunteer by helping with the monthly and annual book sales, fundraising, and promoting the library. In addition to membership dues, money raised from the Literary Luncheon and book sales support on-going adult, children, and teen events, provide prizes for summer reading programs and help purchase equipment not covered in the general budget.
As a member of the Friends of the Crown Point Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year – with children’s smiles, the sincere appreciation of the library’s hardworking staff and the pure satisfaction of knowing you make a difference in your community!
