Reading with the Rays

You're already reading--why not double dip? Minutes you read for the library's summer program can also be counted on the Reading with the Rays log.

Pre-K through grade 12 students can pick up a game card at the library at the same time they begin our summer reading program.

As you reach each base, bring your log to the library to get the next prize. When you reach home plate, turn in your completed game card for two tickets to a Tampa Bay Rays home game!
