Reading with Ringling Bros. January 2012

A great program we learned about last year is “Reading with Ringling Bros.” A program designed to allow your child to earn a free ticket voucher to the Circus just for reading books, awesome right? Especially when you have several little ones you plan to take.

Libraries participating this year:

Homewood Public Library

Emmet O’Neal Library in Mountain Brook –

Vestavia Hills Library

Trussville Public Library (starting Thursday January 12th)
Green Pond – Woodstock Library
Pell City Library
Clay Library

You can receive a FREE ticket to the Circus appearing Jan. 25-29 at the BJCC Arena (for kids ages 2-12)

Here’s how it works:
1. Ask a staff member in the Children’s Department for a Rewards Club Card.
2. Fill in the information on the back of the card.
3. Your Rewards Club Card must be stamped by your librarian after completing and returning each book.
4. You must complete five books and receive five stamps in order to receive your FREE ticket.
5. Bring your Rewards Club Card to the Childrens’ Department to be stamped.
6. Present your Rewards Club Card to the Box Office at the BJCC Arena before January 29th for your free ticket.
7. To ensure seating, redeem your Rewards Club Card in advance of your desired performance. An adult ticket must be purchased at the time of redemption

Reading is a great way to discover, dream, and learn and now it can take you to the circus!

(We have not heard from all of the libraries that we contacted, we will update this list if we learn of more locations, it’s always a good idea to contact your local library if you have any questions about their programming and special events.)

One thought on “Reading with Ringling Bros. January 2012

  1. Thank you for spreading the word about this program!

    A few updates on how it works for patrons of the Birmingham Public Library system (for Jefferson County public libraries outside of the BPL system, please contact them directly):

    1. All locations in the Birmingham Public Library system are participating!
    2. Each child must complete four books.
    3. Just to be clear; the ticket is redeemable ONLY at the BJCC Concert Hall Box Office with the purchase of one (1) Adult ticket at full price.

    Thank you again for encouraging children (of aaall ages!) to dream big and READ!
