The Tampa Hillsborough Public library has teamed up with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper In Education to make summer reading fun!

Beginning May 21st, pick up a game card and a Reading with the Rays newspaper insert at any public library and keep track of the hours you read. Read your way around the bases, then bring in the game card to any library and receive prizes from the Rays. Make it to home plate to receive a free ticket to a Rays game!
