INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers will begin their highly-successful Pacers Summer Reading Tour at select Indianapolis Public Library branches in June.  The program, produced in partnership with The RoomPlace and the Indianapolis Public Library’s own summer reading program, will tip off on Monday, June 12 at 2 p.m., at the Fountain Square Library, 1066 Virginia Ave.

The tour coincides with the library’s eight-week Summer Reading Program, Read It & Eat, which provides a fun and rewarding way for children to maintain their reading habits and improve reading skills during the summer months.  In all, the tour will run from June 12 through July 31. Follow along at #readeatIndyPL.

As part of the Summer Reading Tour, the Pacers and their “Read Like A Pro” program will visit 23 Indianapolis Public Library branches for a one-hour Reading TimeOut.  Guest readers and other special guests, including members of the Indiana Pacemates and the Pacers All-Star Reading Team, will share their favorite children’s stories with those in attendance.  Each child on hand will receive a Pacers “Read Like A Pro” poster and have the opportunity to win a variety of Pacers prizes.
