Braves Tickets to Readers
Monday, 24 June 2013

June 24-- The Ohoopee Regional Library System is pleased to announce a special Summer Reading Program. The Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) present the 2013 Atlanta Braves Summer Reading Program, "Home Run Readers."

This new educational outreach program encourages students to build a love for reading, as well as advance their reading skills during the summer months. Home Run Readers rewards students in grades K-12 throughout Georgia by providing one free Braves ticket for each participant who reads at least one book about sports or good sportsmanship. Discounted tickets for accompanying family members and friends will be available for $7 each.

All-Star pitcher Tim Hudson and All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla will serve as Atlanta Braves ambassadors for the Home Run Readers program.

Young readers will go online to the Braves website, register, record a book they have read this summer and get a certificate to present to the library. The library will give each participant a special code to enter on the Braves website to get the free ticket.

Reward tickets can be redeemed for any of the five following games:

·       Sunday, June 30, vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

·       Tuesday, July 2, vs. Miami Marlins

·       Monday, July 29, vs. Colorado Rockies

·       Thursday, August 1, vs. Colorado Rockies

·       Sunday, August 11, vs. Miami Marlins

Home Run Readers is open to all Georgia students in grades K-12 and runs through August 11. Program rules, a list of suggested titles, registration information and redemption forms are available at your local public library or online at www.braves.com/reading.
