Children Ages 2-12 May Participate in Reading with Ringling Bros. to Win Free Circus Tickets
Now through January 23, children ages 2-12 may visit their local Birmingham Public branch library to join the Reading with Ringling Bros. program and earn a FREE ticket to the circus! The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be performing at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) Arena January 21 through January 25. Participating children who read five (5) books before the January 24 cutoff date can get a free ticket to see the Greatest Show on Earth! Tickets are only good for shows scheduled for January 21-23. This unique library reading program will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn! For more, visit www.ReadingWithRingling.com.
Here's how it works: Speak with a librarian at your local Birmingham Public branch library to register each child (ages 2-12). Each child must read at least five (5) books to receive his or her redeemable ticket from the library. There is a required parent/guardian ticket purchase upon redemption of the child's card. There is one (1) paid adult ticket with every three (3) free kids’ tickets. The circus reading voucher is valid on Wednesday through Friday performances only on upper level seating. See the front and back of the redemption card for more information. Children under 2 receive free admission to the circus.
Want to learn what it takes to soar on the flying trapeze or just what goes into those cream pies that the clowns throw? Or maybe learn some fun facts about one of the more than 100 cities the mile-long circus train visits or how to teach your old dog a new trick? It’s easy! Just visit any Birmingham Public Library location and enjoy the magic of reading.
