Reading with the Rays @ St. Petersburg Main Library

Hey Kids! Meet Rays players Trever Miller and Cliff Floyd at the St. Petersburg Main Library, 3745 9th Ave N. on Wednesday, July 2 at 12:30 p.m. as the Rays lead off their “Reading with the Rays” program for school-age children.

The Tampa Bay Rays have teamed up with the St. Petersburg Times' Newspaper in Education program, The Rays Foundation, Helios Education Foundation, Pinellas Public Library Cooperative and Hillsborough County to sponsor a reading program that will encourage students to keep reading during the summer. In addition to improving their reading skills, children will also be rewarded with prizes for completing 24 hours of reading from selected lists. For each hour of reading, students will advance around the bases until they hit a reading “home run” and the opportunity to win game tickets.

Game cards will be available in Pinellas and Hillsborough County public libraries by July 1 so start reading and become a winner!
