Kids, are you interested in reading some cool library books? Are you interested in earning a circus ticket at the same time? Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey and area libraries will be hosting some serious fun with Reading with Ringling Bros.!. The Chester County Main Library, Great Falls Community Library, and the Lewisville Community Library will all be participating in the program.
The reading program is easy and fun for kids to participate. The best part is that kids can earn a Ringling Bros.Ò circus ticket by simply doing their library reading! Children from ages 2 to 12 simply need to enroll with the librarian, who will give kids everything to start their library reading. This unique library reading program will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn! For more information, visit www.ReadingWithRingling.com or call or visit your local library. After reading 5 library books and getting their Rewards Club Card stamped by the librarian after each book, the children will take the Rewards Club Card to the box office at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina to exchange the pass in person for 1 reserved seat ticket when also purchasing a full price adult ticket (for each full price adult ticket purchased that adult can redeem up to three free kids’ ticket passes). The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be in Columbia March 7-10, 2013.
Want to learn what it takes to soar on the flying trapeze or just what goes into those cream pies that the clowns throw? Or maybe learn some fun facts about one of the more than 100 cities the mile-long circus train visits or how to teach your old dog a new trick? It’s easy! Just visit your local library and enjoy the magic of reading.
