Indiana Pacers, the Indianapolis Public Library Team up for 25th Year of Call-A-Pacer Program
Victor Oladipo Tips Off Pacers’ Reading Program Monday, April 2
INDIANAPOLIS – For the 25th year, the Indiana Pacers are joining The Indianapolis Public Library to present Call-A-Pacer, sponsored by STANLEY Security. This program allows callers to listen to featured Pacers players, alumni and personalities read classic barnyard-inspired stories.
Fans of all ages can call either (317) 275-4444 or (877) 275-9007, or log onto Pacers.com to hear the players read pre-selected children’s stories. In addition, fans also can visit their local library to check out the featured book of the week and receive a poster or autographed photo of that week’s featured reader. The phone lines are open 24 hours.
The program tips off April 2 with Victor Oladipo reading Horseplay! written by Karma Wilson.
Call-A-Pacer was created to encourage school-age children to read and visit their neighborhood library. All stories will run for one week beginning Monday, April 2, and will conclude the week of June 18.
The Call-A-Pacer program is part of the Pacers Cares education initiative.
