Indiana Pacers Summer Reading Tour Set To Begin

Official Release

June 4, 2014

In Partnership with the Indianapolis Public Library, Pacers Reach Out

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers will begin their highly-successful Pacers Summer Reading Tour at select Indianapolis Public Library branches in mid-June. The program, produced in partnership with the Indianapolis Public Library’s own summer reading program, will tip off Friday, June 13 at two separate locations – the Eagle Branch on Lowry Rd., at 11:00 a.m. and at the Decatur Branch, 5301 Kentucky Ave., at 2:00 p.m.

The Pacers tour coincides with the Library’s eight-week Summer Reading Program, which provides a fun and rewarding way for children to maintain their reading habits and improve reading skills during the summer months. In all, the Pacers Reading Tour will run from June 13 through August 1.

As part of the Summer Reading Tour, the Pacers Fan Van will visit Indianapolis Public Library branches for a one-hour Reading TimeOut. Guest readers and other special guests, including members of the Indiana Pacemates and the Pacers All-Star Reading Team, will share their favorite children’s stories with those in attendance. Each child on hand will receive a Pacers “Read” poster and bookmark. Following each Reading TimeOut, visitors to the branch library will have the opportunity to spin the Pacers Prize Wheel for their chance at winning a variety of Pacers prizes.
