Reading with the Rays

Summer Reading Program

Just as school gets out, families can pick up their “Reading with the Rays: Read Your Way to the Ballpark” score cards at public libraries throughout Pinellas County. This summer reading program, presented by the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation, includes opportunities for youth to circle the bases on their game card and win great prizes, including one free ticket to a Rays baseball game once a participant has made it to Home Plate!

Along with our other major partner, the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education department, PPLC and the Rays Foundation are promoting this program designed to emphasize the importance of continued literacy thoroughout the summer months. Join us and we "read our way to the ballpark" this summer!
