RailRiders Roll Out READing Railroad Program

August 12 Designated “Library Night” at PNC Field

Moosic, Pa. – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are encouraging children to curl up with a good book this summer as part of their READing Railroad program. The initiative is a library-based reading program that encourages kids to attend their local library, read and then rewards them with a free ticket to a RailRiders game to be themed “Library Night” on Aug. 12.
The launch of the program coincides with the beginning of “Library Appreciation Week,” which runs April 12-18. Registration forms for READing Railroad have already been sent to libraries in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Carbon, Monroe, Pike, Wyoming and Wayne counties.
Children ages 4-12 are eligible to participate. Children participating in the program will receive a bookmark from their participating library. As each child checks out and reads a book, the librarian will check off one of the boxes located on the back of the bookmark. Once the child has completed five books, they can turn in their bookmark at the PNC Field Box Office for their free ticket for the Aug. 12 “Library Night” game. Bookmarks can be redeemed at the box office on or before the Aug. 12 game date.
Kids 12 and under attending the game that night can also eat for free as part of “Kids Eat Free Wednesday,” presented by Minooka Subaru.
The RailRiders begin a three-game series with the Rochester Red Wings (Triple-A/Minnesota Twins) on Monday night at 6:35 p.m.  For more information please call (570) 969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.
