Call a Pacer


For the 15th year, the Indiana Pacers have teamed up with the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library to present Call-A-Pacer.  Call-A-Pacer, sponsored by Stanley Security Solutions, allows callers to listen to featured Pacers' players or coaches read a children’s story.

Fans of all ages can call (317) 275-4444 or log on to Pacers.com, beginning Monday, April 7, to hear members of the Pacers read pre-selected children's stories.  The phone lines are open 24 hours, and may be accessed by up to four listeners at a time.

Call-A-Pacer was created to encourage school-aged children to read and visit their neighborhood library.  All stories will run for one week beginning April 7 and will conclude the week of June 30, 2008.

The Call-A-Pacer program is part of the Pacers Read to Achieve program presented by Chase.

The schedule for Call-A-Pacer is listed below:
